Architecture writer Pridmore and designer Larson chart the course of modern architecture and design in the windy city. They describe its roots, the Chicago school, Frank Lloyd Wright, from arts and crafts to art deco, the rise of modernism, modern and postmodern Chicago, and Chicago's second modern period. Photographs are by the Hedrich Blessing studio. The book has been completely redesigned and expanded since the 1993 edition, and includes a new final chapter on the signature works of the last twenty years--including Frank Gehry's Millennium Park bandshell (2004).

Blackwell North Amer
This book chronicles Chicago's architectural tradition from the nineteenth through the early twenty-first century, from the structural simplicity of Chicago School commercial building to the low-slung Prairie School house, from the streamlined Art Deco skyscraper to the minimalist Miesian tower of glass and steel, and all the way through to the strikingly original, diverse designs of the present day's so-called second modern period.
