"The Building", Bonnie plays a struggling actress, (who has gained some fame due to her Randoloh Carpet commercials) who has just been jilted by her fiance' (George Clooney). As a result she moves into an apartment across from Wrigley field and becomes great friends with the other occupants of the building. "The Building" made Bonnie the first woman to create, write, produce and star in a television series. Says Bonnie: "I didn't think they'd ever listen to me so I wrote twenty-two episodes before I sold it. I thought it was the only way they'd believe I could actually do it." Against the urging of network executives Bonnie made The Building her way, hiring friends from Second City to star along side her.

A building, or edifice, is a structure with a roof and walls standing more or less permanently in one place, such as a house or factory. Buildings come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and functions, and have been adapted throughout history for a wide number of factors, from building materials available, to weather conditions, land prices, ground conditions, specific uses, and aesthetic reasons. To better understand the term building compare the list of nonbuilding structures. Buildings serve several societal needs – primarily as shelter from weather, security, living space, privacy, to store belongings, and to comfortably live and work. A building as a shelter represents a physical division of the human habitat (a place of comfort and safety) and the outside (a place that at times may be harsh and harmful). Ever since the first cave paintings, buildings have also become objects or canvasses of much artistic expression. In recent years, interest in sustainable planning and building practices has also become an intentional part of the design process of many new buildings.

Any building requires a certain amount of internal infrastructure to function, which includes such elements like heating / cooling, power and telecommunications, water and wastewater etc. Especially in commercial buildings (such as offices or factories), these can be extremely intricate systems taking up large amounts of space (sometimes located in separate areas or double floors / false ceilings) and constitute a big part of the regular maintenance required.
