Published by Thriftbooks. I thought this book was very interesting it has great pictures of the buildings in Chicago. It has alot of information about the beginning of when Architects wanted to build something modern but unqiue at the same time. Get inspired by the great exterior and interior of these amazing buildings. Fine Book on Chicago Architecture. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 17 years ago. This book described many of the significant architects in Chicago history. I found it to be informative and very readable

As a result of the Great Fire of 1871, Chicago became a major creative centre of American architecture. Talented architects flocked to the city in the fire's aftermath, and made use of new technology, such as the fireproof steel frame and the safety elevator to create what is considered to be the world's first skyscraper, and ultimately change the look of 20th-century cities. These innovations - which required the planning of structures from the inside out - can be seen in this book. This volume chronicles the work of architects Louis H. Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as well as that of H.H. Richardson, John Welborn Root, William LeBaron Jenny and their successors. More than 70 important buildings are pictured - most with one exterior image and several views of the interior - spanning Richardson's 1887 Glessner House through The Rookery, Robie House, the Carson Pirie Scott & Company store, 860-880 North Lake Shore Drive and the current work of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Kohn Pedersen Fox and Cesar Pelli, among others. Biographical information about the leading architects is integrated with the architectural discussion.

I wanted a book with photos so I could picture the buildings being described. The book is also organized in very sensible chapters. You can pick it up and read as much or as little as you like at any given time. Also a great price from
amazon.

Great book depicting the look of Chicago and some of it's history!

This book has beautifull photographs. The book is much deeper than other Chicago architecture books because it has a well thought out historical review of the progression of Chicago architecture. Interesting even for the lay person like me.

I looked at several books online, and this one seemed the most comprehensive of the Chicago architecture options. It was a gift for my husband, and he seems to like it.

After going on the Architecture Foundation's boat tour, I wanted to give a guest a book on it. I've certainly seen others that are better or more up to date but this was an interesting read for that purpose and quality binding/photos.
I gave it as a gift, but the recipient raved about it
