Guide to Chicago's Twenty-First-Century Architecture
Pardon me tooting my own horn, but today, June 8, 2021, is the official release date for Guide to Chicago's Twenty-First-Century Architecture, which I wrote with the Chicago Architecture Center and is published by University of Illinois Press.
This, my sixth book, is a guide to 200 buildings and landscapes in Chicago and the suburbs across 21 chapters, with maps, color photographs, and sidebars to include even more projects.
Here is the cover, featuring Studio Gang’s St. Regis Chicago (formerly Vista Tower):
Here are snippets of a couple super-nice endorsements:
True to the Chicago Architecture Center's educational mission, this book is thoroughly researched, offers a primer in diverse local history, and gives newbies a lesson in the special language of architecture. --Geoffrey Baer, host, WTTW
This book extends the story of Chicago architecture in to the twenty-first century. It serves as a guide for all who want to explore how great architecture has continued to reinvent and positively transform all of Chicago’s neighborhoods. --Ralph Johnson FAIA, Design Director, Perkins & Will
