And Guide Chicago: Architecture & Design (And Guides)ISBN: 383279025X;
Издательство: Te Neues Publishing Company
Americas third largest city is a veritable textbook of architectural styles. Long known as the birthplace of the skyscraper and modern architecture, Chicagos buildings rise brilliantly and brazenly from the plains to declare their importance to the world. The citys renown for twentieth century architecture often diverts attention from more recently constructed buildings. teNeues presents another in its series of authoritative pocket guides to fill that void, highlighting several of the citys newest and most interesting structures by such architects as Rafael Vinoly, Rem Koolhaas and Frank Gehry. Each building is profiled in a two-page spread and a site map is included at the end of the book.
