The complete architecture of Adler & Sullivan by Adler and Sullivan ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Louis Sullivan (1856-1924) was a giant of architecture, the father of architectural modernism, and one of the earliest builders of the skyscraper. Along with Dankmar Adler (1844-1900) he designed many of the buildings that defined nineteenth-century architecture not only in Chicago but in cities across America - and continue to be admired today. Among their iconic designs are the former Chicago Stock Exchange, Chicago's Auditorium Building and Carson Pirie Scott flagship store, the Wain-wright Building in St. Louis, and the Guaranty Building in Buffalo. This first-of-its-kind catalogue raisonne of the work of Adler and Sullivan - both as a team and individual architects - is a lavish celebration of the designs of these two seminal architects who paved the way for the modern skylines that continue to inspire city dwellers today. The quest to pull together a complete catalogue was first undertaken in 1952 by photographers Aaron Siskind and Richard Nickel, and this intense, decades-long labor of love has resulted in an extensive and unique resource that includes a complete listing of all of the buildings and projects undertaken by Adler and Sullivan. Each listing contains historic photographs, architectural plans (when available), and a description of each project. Alongside over 250 essays are eight hundred photographs of their buildings - many of which have since been demolished - including images by Nickel, Siskind, and other noted photographers. This rich, incomparable reference will be treasured by readers interested in architecture, photography, and Chicago's rich history as an architectural mecca

Chicago's historic Hyde Park by Susan O'Connor Davis ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stretching south from 47th Street to the Midway Plaisance and east from Washington Park to the lake's shore, the historic neighborhood of Hyde Park--Kenwood covers nearly two square miles of Chicago's south side. At one time a wealthy township outside of the city, this neighborhood has been home to Chicago's elite for more than one hundred and fifty years, counting among its residents presidents and politicians, scholars, athletes, and fiery religious leaders. Known today for the grand mansions, stately row houses, and elegant apartments that these notables called home, Hyde Park--Kenwood is still one of Chicago's most prominent locales. Physically shaped by the Columbian Exposition of 1893 and by the efforts of some of the greatest architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries--including Daniel Burnham, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies Van Der Rohe--this area hosts some of the city's most spectacular architecture amid lush green space. Tree-lined streets give way to the impressive neogothic buildings that mark the campus of the University of Chicago, and some of the Jazz Age's swankiest high-rises offer spectacular views of the water and distant downtown skyline
