The monumental steel and glass courthouse rising 30 stories is in sharp contrast to its predecessor, a classical six-story structure with a regal dome. Named after a former senator, the Everett McKinley Dirksen United States Courthouse today houses numerous law-enforcement offices including the court of appeals for the seventh circuit and the district court for the Northern District of Illinois. The sleek and minimalist architecture of the building stands out amidst the area's other high-rises.
