Chicago School of Architecture: Building the Modern City, 1880-1910
The perfect introduction to a style of architecture that has transformed the look of the modern age in America and the rest of the world, this book reveals Chicago's architecture as constantly pushing boundaries over a century and a half through design innovation and a wholly new and creative use of materials through engineering. Each section of Chicago's history, starting with the 1870s and ending in the 2010s is illustrated with selected examples of buildings that define the style and achievements.
