The complete architecture of Adler & Sullivan by Adler and Sullivan ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 257 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 )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Chicago's Historic Hyde Park, Susan O'Connor Davis offers readers a biography of this distinguished neighborhood, from house to home, and from architect to resident. Along the way, she weaves a fascinating tapestry, describing Hyde Park--Kenwood's most celebrated structures from the time of Lincoln through the racial upheaval and destructive urban renewal of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s into the preservationist movement of the last thirty-five years. Coupled with hundreds of historical photographs, drawings, and current views, Davis recounts the life stories of these gorgeous buildings--and of the astounding talents that built them. This is architectural history at its best
