The Chicago Architectural Club: Prelude to the Modern.
Hasbrouck, Wilbert R.
The Chicago Architectural Club: Prelude to the Modern.
In the late nineteenth century, Chicago, the birthplace of modern architecture in the United States, was a magnet for aspiring architects. The city was forced to rebuild after the destruction wrought by the Great Fire of 1871 and also to expand to accommodate a surge in the population. The seemingly endless demand for taller and more sophisticated buildings offered young draftsmen an unprecedented opportunity to influence the design of the American skyscraper. The Chicago Architecture Club: Prelude to the Modern documents the history of these draftsmen, the organization they founded, and its role in shaping architectural education and modern architectural practice.
