“Imagine touring 50 of Chicago’s most striking homes. No need to knock or ring. Here’s your chance to take a ramble through imposing stair halls, lavish dining rooms, inviting bedrooms, and more!
“At Home in Chicago: A Living History of Domestic Architecture is the first extensive look at the city’s most private residences. You’ve probably heard of some of these places: Frank Lloyd Wright’s sleek Robie House (shown above), H. H. Richardson’s urban residential masterpiece – Glessner House, Mies van der Rohe’s groundbreaking 860-880 Lake Shore Drive, and Jeanne Gang’s sublime Aqua Tower. But most of the residences featured are off-limits to Chicago’s famous architectural tours.
“This presentation will be given by author Patrick Cannon and photographer James Caulfield. Cannon has had a long career as a publicist, journalist, and editor and has led tours of Chicago-area architecture for more than four decades. James Caulfield is a professional photographer with more than 30 years of experience concentrating on everything from architecture to food and beverage. He has also restored a bank in Chicago, a Midcentury Modern home in Glencoe, and a bungalow in Berwyn. This is the sixth book on architecture published by the duo.
Copies of the book will be available to in-person attendees for purchase and signing.
