A View from the River: The Chicago Architecture Center River Cruise Aboard Chicago’s First Lady

$15.95

Published with: the Chicago Architecture Center

The story of Chicago is the story of its river. Since Chicago was founded in the 1830s, architects and engineers have designed this city through a series of unforgettable engineering marvels, from the buildings of the Chicago skyline to the Chicago River itself. The river, though a natural feature, has been dredged, straightened, and even had its direction reversed in the past 200 years. Today, the river flows through a canyon of skyscrapers, civic structures, waterside homes, and parks. A View from the River is an essential guide to more than 60 significant buildings and structures along the Chicago River. This visual tour—filled with stunning contemporary photography and a variety of historical images—serves as a companion to the Chicago Architecture Center River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady.
