The Chicago School of Architecture in Less Than 90 Seconds

by Michael R. Allen

I found this neat little video in which inimitable Tim Samuelson explains the design principles of the Chicago School in under 90 seconds, using Chicago’s Marquette Building (1895, Holabird & Roche) as an example.

The video is part of a series produced by the MacArthur Foundation in 2009 that celebrate the restoration of the Marquette Building — work that included reconstruction of the lost cornice. Watch the videos here.
