Building Chicago

$63.00 USD $85.00 USD

Building Chicago presents the best of this countryâs first city of architecture. The masters who have helped shape its streetscape and skyline stand as a whoâs who of the architectural pantheon from the last two hundred years, from Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, and Frank Lloyd Wright to Mies van der Rohe and Frank Gehry. Beautifully illustrated, this book includes the masterworks of Chicago architecture- from the Chicago Tribune Tower and the Rookery by Burnham & Root to the compelling residential skyscraper Aqua by Jeanne Gang. It features the cityâs beloved masterpieces by Wright, including the Robie House, such milestones as the Willis Tower and the John Hancock Building, Gehryâs Pritzker Bandshell, as well as a wealth of little-known treasures from Chicagoâs early days culled from the vast collection of the Chicago History Museum. 304 pages.
