"Chicago's Famous Buildings, fifth edition, covers more than a decade of extraordinary new architecture and takes a fresh look back at the city's rich legacy of Adler, Sullivan, Burnham, Root, Wright, and Mies van der Rohe. The authors have added many new descriptions and images, of the most important projects in Chicago since the fourth edition, including, the massive reconstruction of Grant Park around Frank Gehry's Music Pavilion, and they cover as well the current statues of older buildings - some destroyed, others, such as Burnham's Reliance Building, marvelously restored and brought back to life." "Chicago's Famous Buildings, fifth edition, also includes expanded sections on the city's future and the development of its diverse neighborhoods, presented with new maps to serve as an even more effective walking guide. A glossary of architectural terms, an extensive index, and more than sixty new photographs of both old and new buildings bring this guide into the present.". "Authoritative, informative, and easier to use than ever before, Chicago's Famous Buildings, fifth edition, serves visitors, and residents alike as the leading architectural guide to the treasures of this marvelous city."--BOOK JACKET.
