CHICAGO SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE. BUILDING THE MODERN CITY, 1800- 1910
Editorial: SHIRE PUBLICATIONS
This book is the perfect introduction to a style of architecture that has transformed the look both of modern America and of the rest of the world. Rolf Achilles shows how Chicago’s architects and buildings have constantly pushed the boundaries over the last 150 years, through design innovation and often wholly new and creative use of materials in engineering applications. Each period of Chicago’s history, starting with the 1870s and ending in the 2010s, is fascinatingly illustrated with perfectly chosen examples that define the style and achievements of the era.
