The third edition of the AIA Guide to Chicago brings readers up to date on ten years of dynamic changes with new entries on smaller projects as well as showcases like the Aqua building, Trump Tower, and Millennium Park. Four hundred photos and thirty-four specially commissioned maps make it easy to find each of the one-thousand-plus featured buildings. Laurie Petersen, Zurich Esposito, and Bill Hinchliff will show images and discuss the iconic new buildings as well as hidden gems featured in the book.
Laurie Petersen edited the third edition of the AIA Guide to Chicago (and was the associate editor of the first two editions). Zurich Esposito is the executive vice president of AIA Chicago. Bill Hinchliff has lectured and given tours of Chicago architecture for over 30 years.
