Chicago Architecture and Design - Hardcover Book
By Jay Pridmore and George A. Larson; with principal photography by Hedrich Blessing
This book chronicles Chicago's architectural tradition from the nineteenth through the early twenty-first century: from the structural simplicity of Chicago School commercial building to the low-slung Prairie School house, from the streamlined Art Deco skyscraper to the minimalist Miesian tower of glass and steel, and all the way through to the strikingly original, diverse designs of the present days so-called second modern period. This new edition of the authoritative book on Chicago architecture has been completely redesigned, substantially revised, and expanded to include signature works of the last twenty years, up to and including Frank Gehry's Millenium Park band shell.
