Riassunto: Chicago has been at the forefront of architectural progress for more than a century. This completely revised edition documents the city's recent architecture, starting with the deveopments at O'Hare airport, taking in the commercial buildings of the Old Town, the West Loop, and the Central Business District, and ending with the houses and municipal facilities of the suburbs. Along the way the book covers museums (including the Museum of Contemporary Art by Josef Paul Kleihues - a rare example of a major building in the city by an imported architect), schools, diners, cottages, shops, and schools. Among the architects whose work is featured are Sarah Dunn/Martin Felsen, Studio Gang/O'Donnell, Doug Garofalo/Randall Kober, and Helmut Jahn, Carol Ross Barney, Paul Florian, Ron Krueck, Obi Nwazota, and Joe Valerio. More than one hundred buildings, all completed within the last ten years and including the work of such well-known firms as Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Holabird & Root and Stanley Tigerman, as well as many new, young firms, are described and illustrated, with full location and access details.
Review: Chicago: A Guide to Recent Architecture is one in a series of lovely little guides to many of the world's major cities created by British publisher Ellipsis. The information contained here ranges from brief perspectives on the city's architectural history to tips on which maps are best for visitors and how to navigate the local public transit system. The book considers architecture not as something that happens on isolated building sites, but rather as social, cultural, and political phenomena. At four inches square, this highly portable book is an ideal travel companion.
Some of the other books in the series cover Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, New York City, and Tokyo. Each guidebook has its own flavor, as different writers--usually architects--cover each city. --Loren E. Baldwin
