The Space Within: Inside Great Chicago Buildings

The Space Within: Inside Great Chicago Buildings

Regular price $65.00 Sale

For the first time, the interiors of some of the Chicago area’s greatest buildings, designed by celebrated architects, are brought together and featured in truly stunning original photographs. These Chicago-area homes, religious spaces, and commercial and public structures give visual meaning to Frank Lloyd Wright’s belief that “the space within becomes the reality of the building.”

Featured buildings include Nickerson Mansion (now the Driehaus Museum) designed by Burling and Whitehouse, the Clarke House, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House, Adler & Sullivan’s Auditorium Building and The soaring Bahá’í Temple by Louis Bourgeois. These architects and their contemporaries have made the Chicago area a mecca for both architects and lovers of architecture from around the world.
