Another Book from My Stack of Reading...

Why Architecture Matters: Lessons from ChicagoWhy Architecture Matters: Lessons from Chicago by Blair Kamin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blair Kamin has been writing about Chicago's architecture for more than a decade for the Chicago Tribune. This book was part of my reading before I began my walk all the way around Lake Michigan. I wanted to better understand Chicago -- since I began and ended my Lake Trek there -- and understanding its architecture was part of that.

This readable collection of Kamin's essays gives a wonderful overview of the choices that have made Chicago's skyline and city so special.
