The global headquarters of the SC Johnson company in Racine, Wisconsin includes the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Administration Building and Research Tower. The complex has been an attraction for tourists, architects, and Wright aficionados from around the world.

The SC Johnson Administration Building, which opening in 1939, is celebrated as one of the 25 most important buildings of the 20th century. From the 43 miles of glass Pyrex tubing that forms its windows, to the soaring columns in its Great Workroom, the Administration Building is a truly unique place to work. It’s also the only corporate headquarters that Frank Lloyd Wright designed that remains operational.

The SC Johnson Research Tower, which opened in 1950, is one of the tallest structures ever built on the cantilever principle. The tower rises more than 150 feet into the air and is 40 feet square, yet at ground level, it’s supported by a base only 13 feet across at its narrowest point. The Research Tower was the primary home of SC Johnson’s Research and Development efforts from 1950 to 1982, giving birth to trusted brands including Raid®, Glade®, OFF!® and Pledge®.
