9780810958920: Chicago Architecture and Design

Chicago is world famous for an architectural tradition that has influenced building around the globe. It is the birthplace of the skyscraper and the cradle of modern architecture; it gave rise to the urban office building as we know it, and to the flowing, open floor plans of today's homes. This book chronicles Chicago's architectural tradition from the nineteenth through the early twenty-first century, examining its evolution in the context of broader historical, social, technological, and artistic currents. It explores Chicago architects' quest for a quintessentially American style, and the century of innovation that pushed buildings ever higher, opened them to space and light, and increasingly dissolved the boundaries between indoors and out. It looks at world-renowned structures from the inside out, giving special attention to the interiors that were and remain so important to Chicago's architects. Chicago School commercial building, to the low-slung Prairie School house, the streamlined Art Deco skyscraper, and the minimalist Miesian tower of glass and steel, all the way through to the strikingly original, diverse designs of the present day's so-called second modern movement. This eminently readable text vividly discusses both the life and work of such towering figures as Daniel Burnham, John Wellborn Root, Louis H. Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mies van der Rohe - as well as that of the many lesser-known architects who have made outstanding contributions.

About the Author:

Jay Pridmore is a freelance writer and critic who has published several books on the architecture of Chicago. George A. Larson is chairman and director of design of Larson Associates, Chicago

From Booklist:

Chicago is known as an architect's city. Its buildings are bold and innovative, from the organic intricacies designed by Louis Sullivan around the turn of the century to the grand simplicity of Mies van der Rohe five decades later. Larson and Pridmore cover the evolution of modern architecture from the building boom after Chicago's Great Fire of 1871 through the 1992 completion of the Harold Washington Library. They review the careers of Chicago's seminal architects, including John Wellborn Root, William Holabird, Daniel Burnham, David Adler, Frank Lloyd Wright, and George Fred Keck and William Keck, "heroes of Chicago Modernism" during the 1930s. Moving forward in time, they discuss the work of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, the city's most influential builder during the 1960s and 1970s, as well as the controversial and flashy structures of Helmut Jahn, particularly the peculiar State of Illinois Building, which sits amid traditional downtown towers like a captured space station. Many of the 243 illustrations display the gracefully designed interiors of Chicago's finest buildings, a facet of architecture often neglected in such surveys. Donna Seaman
