• A Critical Guide by Edward Keegan •

Chicago is that rare American city that draws visitors just to see its architecture. Famous designers like Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Daniel Burnham, and Mies van der Rohe made the city known as the Birthplace of Modern Architecture. Contemporary stars like Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, and Renzo Piano have left their mark as well.

This "critical guide" steers you to dozens of the city's landmarks and hidden jewels with the outspoken commentary of Edward Keegan, an award-winning observer and participant in the local scene for a quarter century. Whether you're looking for directions around town to the major sites or just scrolling to add to your knowledge of this city's seminal designs, "Chicago Architecture: A Critical Guide by Edward Keegan" will instruct and entertain.
