1964 – ING ReliaStar Building, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Architect: Minoru Yamasaki



ING Reliastar Building, Formerly Northwestern National Life Insurance Building. What’s now known as the ING Reliastar Building dates from 1964, and was the design of architect Minoru Yamasaki (1912-1986). A second-generation Japanese-American, Yamasaki’s vocabulary of design typified the streamlined post-World War II era in the USA. Elements of the Reliastar Building could also be seen in Yamasaki’s most famous structures, the World Trade Center Towers in lower Manhattan.

Yamasaki was also the designer of the ill-fated Pruitt-Igoe Public Housing Project in St. Louis.
