# MILITARIZED ARCHITECTURES /// Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago

This building must be very well known by people who live in Chicago, but until yesterday I never heard about it. Designed in 1975 by Harry Weese’s office, the Metropolitan Correctional Center is a vertical prison in the very center of Chicago. The buildings definitely uses a feudal vocabulary of dungeon but is also striking by its discretion that makes it be easy to confused with an average office building. (the corollary is probably also true)
