Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rising from the ashes of the Great Fire in 1871, Chicago became home to one of the greatest collections of modern architecture. From Frank Lloyd Wright to Mies van de Rohe, many pioneering architects played a significant role in Chicago's development, and this breathtaking tribute to the Windy City honors and illuminates their feats of design and construction. Starting with a look at Chicago's architectural history, it then looks at the contemporary skyline and the structures that are the city's claim to fame. Among them: the Sears Tower, Chicago's tallest skyscraper; the Frank Lloyd Wright House; Bruce Graham and Fazlur Kahn's John Hancock Building, made possible by computer technology and new developments in steel; plus the Amoco Building, Chicago Temple, Tribune Tower, and Rookery.
