Building Chicago

The Architectural Masterworks

Building Chicago presents the best of this country's first city of architecture. Colloquially known as America's "second city," Chicago is widely regarded as this country's crown jewel when it comes to architecture. The roster of masters who have helped shape its skyline and streetscape stands as a who's who of the architectural pantheon from the last two hundred years, from Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, and Frank Lloyd Wright to Mies van der Rohe and Frank Gehry. Lavishly illustrated, this volume compellingly displays the masterworks of Chicago architecture-from the Chicago Tribune Tower (1925) and the Rookery (1888) by Burnham & Root to the Trump International Hotel and Tower (2008) by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and the residential skyscraper Aqua (2009) by Jeanne Gang. It features the city's beloved masterpieces by Wright, including the Robie House, such milestones as the Willis Tower and the John Hancock Building, Gehry's Pritzker Bandshell, as well as a wealth of little-known treasures from Chicago's early days culled from the vast collection of the Chicago History Museum.
"It's a perfect, and substantial, holiday gift as well as a resource for anyone interested in Chicago's architecture."
-Skyline (Illinois)

"It's hard to imagine a better compendium: Building Chicago is an important addition to any serious collection of books about the city."
-Architect's Newspaper

"...if your summer visitors finally get it in the mail at the holidays, they probably won't look at all the selfies they took in front of Chicago's landmarks but this well-thumbed book instead and think 'Golly!'"
- Wright Society

"2016 Holiday Gift Books"

"A new book charts the development of Chicago architecture as the city grew from a cow-town to a Midwestern metropolis."
-Chicago Tonight/ WTTW-TV

"For those of us who are absorbed in both Chicago's fascinating history and its astonishing architecture, the images are reason enough to acquire the book."
- Classic Chicago Magazine

". . . although there are just a few images from Oak Park, the recently released " Building Chicago ," is a must for any Chicago architecture and/or Chicago history buff ."
-Pioneer Press
