The perfect city by Bob Thall( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Perfect City, photographer Bob Thall explores the changing downtown landscape of America's third-largest city - Chicago. In sixty-four duotone photographs, Thall provides a visual record of the changing architectural landscape of downtown Chicago between 1972 and 1991. Throughout, Thall's photographs stress the concept of change and the importance of architecture in shaping our notion of place. They examine the great public spaces, buildings, and streets that have always served at the heart and soul of city life, culture, and commerce. And they show how the city in which modern urban architecture began becomes a metaphor for urban change throughout America. In the essay accompanying the photographs Peter Bacon Hales examines the notion of the city as museum (especially for visitors from the suburbs and rural areas), highlights the successes and failures of urban renewal in downtown Chicago, and assesses the city's current character
The new American village by Bob Thall( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In The New American Village, Thall captures four components of the new edge city--corporate, commercial, domestic, and environmental--in a way that no previous photographer has achieved. To find the stark but provocatively beautiful images that appear in the book, Thall spent years exploring the western and northwestern suburbs of Chicago, photographing remnants of open land and farm structures, the process of clearing and construction, corporate headquarters, townhouse developments, model homes, office parks, strip malls, and the many aspects of nature that remain, in one way or another, in these miniature cities."
City spaces : photographs of Chicago alleys by Bob Thall( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In City Spaces Thall returns downtown to Chicago's alleys where the artist finds remnants of the old city that he, and many other Chicagoans, once found so compelling. Although the fronts of these buildings may have been refurbished, Thall notes, "no one had bothered with the back. One could see the evidence of many years of use and history." Here among the deep urban slits where rain almost never falls one can experience a sense of Chicago as it once was. Writes Thall: "Investigating these spaces reminded me of my earlier sense of the city as a mysterious landscape to explore
