Product Description
A View from the River: The Chicago Architecture Foundation River Cruise
This book—a completely new version of Pomegranate’s 2000 book of the same name—is a companion to the architectural river cruises run daily by the Chicago Architecture Foundation. It presents the principal buildings along the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, from schools to high-rises, in the order one sees them while heading up the river from Lake Michigan. The history and architecture of each project is described, and each branch of the river is introduced with an illustrated historical essay.

Author Jennifer Marjorie Bosch has written articles and developed exhibitions about Chicago history. The book’s color photographs (many are full-page images) are from Hedrich Blessing, a top-notch firm specializing in architectural photography.
