Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Thumbing through this book, even the most astute observer of Chicago’s architecture scene will likely be amazed by all the new building that has taken place in the last ten years in every corner of the city.... As with the previous two editions, the beauty of the Guide remains its scope. It features not only the famous (Willis Tower, Millennium Park, and the works of Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Mies van der Rohe) but also hundreds of hidden gems scattered all over the city."
--from the preface by Geoffrey Baer

Praise for earlier editions of the AIA Guide to Chicago:
 
"A many-voiced celebration of the rich flavors of Chicago architecture, the delights on the side streets as well as the landmarks that make the history books."
--Chicago Sun-Times
 
"If you’ve ever needed a good excuse to take a walk around a Chicago neighborhood or study a particularly noteworthy building, this should provide the perfect push out the door."
--Chicago Tribune
