Kahn. If monumentality is a spiritual quality that conveys a sense of eternity, as Kahn argued in the first lines of his paper, then architecture can (and will) achieve this through the building’s structure and materials. ” To do so requires the risk of thinking monumentality anew: “no architect can rebuild a cathedral of another epoch . . ” Instead, architects must embrace the methods and materials of modern times. Kahn believed that modernity was vividly figured in contemporary industry, especially war industry: “war engineering achievements in concrete, steel and wood are showing the signs of maturity appropriate to guide the minds entrusted with the conception of [the cathedral of our time].

As a result, the dimension of the piers is reduced and the size of the windows increased. While this combination of iron columns and masonry piers is not a genuine structural frame, it is significant because it involved no attempt to represent a load-bearing wall. To the contrary, what was emphasized were the points of intersection between the vertical and horizontal members, apparently denying the impact of gravity. Perhaps the distinction between wall and frame in the Auditorium and the First Leiter buildings is related to the distinction between a civic and a commercial structure—assuming that both architects designed their facades in consideration of expectations of facade treatment according to building type.

This view easily accommodated the technical and aesthetic characteristics of the frame, but also those of its infill—the substitute for walling that would develop into cladding. From the outset of the development of the frame in Chicago, architects struggled with the tension between representation of the wall, as an outmoded form of construction, and the frame as an outgrowth of contemporary production. This tension is apparent in the contrast between two buildings constructed in 1889: the Auditorium Building by Adler and Sullivan and the First Leiter Building by William Le Baron Jenney.
