The Chicago School of Architecture: A History of Commercial and Public Building in the Chicago Area, 1875-1925
University of Chicago Press, 1964 - 238 lappuses
"This thoroughly illustrated classic study traces the history of the world-famous Chicago school of architecture from its beginnings with the functional innovation of William Le Baron Jenney and others to their imaginative development by Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. The Chicago School of Architecture places the Chicago school in its historical setting, showing it at once to be the culmination of an iron and concrete construction and the chief pioneer in the evolution of modern architecture. It also assesses the achievements of the school in terms of the economic, social, and cultural growth of Chicago at the turn of the century, and it shows the ultimate meaning of the Chicago work for contemporary architecture."--Backcover
