Universally recognized as an architectural center, the city of Chicago contains some of the world's finest buildings by the most renowned architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, Mies van der Rohe and many more left their stamp on the city's skyline and as a result influenced the practice of architecture around the globe. This book, published in association with the Chicago Architecture Foundation, features an in-depth analysis of 42 buildings erected within the last two centuries that are considered to be the seminal works of Chicago architecture.

This accessible and engaging volume is the latest addition to the successful Universe Architecture Series.

Among the highlights are residential icons such as Mies van der Rohe's 860-880 Lake Shore Drive, skyscraper prototypes such as Sullivan's Schlesinger and Mayer Store (1899), and technological and engineering masterpieces such as Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's Willis (Sears) Tower (1974).
