Commercial style

Commercial style

(1890–1915)
A skeletal, rectangular style of the first five-to fifteen-story skyscrapers brought to full form in Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia. It was characterized by flat roofs, and minimal ornament, except for slight variations in the spacing of windows. Extensive use of glass was made possible by its steel-frame construction, which could bear the structural loads that masonry could not.
