Synopses & Reviews
Here is the thoroughly revised and updated edition of the leading
pocket guide to the greatest urban architecture in the United States.
Since its first appearance in 1965, this book has been the standard
guide to Chicago's best buildings. This new edition covers more than
a decade of extraordinary new architecture—and takes a fresh look
back at the city's classical legacy of Adler, Sullivan, Burnham, Root,
Wright, and Mies van der Rohe.
