Title: Procter and Gamble Headquarters
Author: MacKaron, Erissa, Photographer
Description: The Proctor and Gamble complex spans over two city blocks and is comprised of three major building projects and extensive landscaping. In 1956 architects Voorhees, Walker, Smith and Smith designed an eleven-story limestone, granite and marble office building for the site at 6th and Sycamore Streets. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill extended this structure east of Broadway in 1972. At this time the half block south was cleared and extensively landscaped as well as the construction of a corporate conference and data center on the north side of 6th Street. In 1985 a seventeen-story building with twin octagonal buildings on a six- story L-shaped base was built east of Broadway. The prior structures were updated to match the new construction. The complex is pulled together by plaza. This plaza consists of grand driveways, flagpoles, fountains and a grand courtyard with wisteria-covered pergolas. Considered a Post-modern exemplar, the newly designed Chiquita Center was one of three office buildings in the world in 1987 to receive an award from the American Institute of Architects. The New York firm, Kohn Pederson Fox Associates, designed the building in 1985.
