Forgotten Chicago
Chicago was and is home to some of the world's most impressive architecture, but many of the city’s architectural masterpieces have been lost—some to modernization and others simply to the ravages of time. This book preserves the unique story of the city’s famed architectural wonders, including the old Northwestern train station, the Coliseum, the Chicago Stadium, old Comiskey Park, Soldier Field, and even some of Chicago's most famous diners.

Chicago's Classical Architecture: The Legacy of the White City
After the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, the “Plan of Chicago,” developed by the fair’s lead architect Daniel Burnham, paved the way for what Chicagoans now see in Grant Park, as well as in other structures, office buildings, monuments, hotels, schools, and museums—all inspired by Greek and Roman architecture. For the first time, these structures—spanning well over 200 years of building—appear in one collection.
