Winner of the 2016 Independent Publisher Book Award for Architecture, The Space Within brings together the interiors of great Chicago buildings in more than 360 stunning photographs.

Chicago is a mecca for architects and lovers of architecture worldwide, and The Space Within showcases why. These Chicago-area homes, religious spaces and commercial and public structures give visual meaning to Frank Lloyd Wright's belief that "the space within becomes the reality of the building."

The Space Within transports readers from famous residences, such as Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, to dizzyingly majestic commercial buildings; from the ornate warmth of Adler & Sullivan's Auditorium to the modern, towering underground stacks of Helmut Jahn's Mansueto Library. Patrick F. Cannon, who has lived and worked in Chicago for more than sixty years, discusses each building's architecture, architect and place in history. James Caulfield, a noted architectural photographer, leads a visual tour into both the intimate and grand interiors of the area's finest buildings.
