Northwestern University: The Campus Guide takes readers on a vivid trip through this campus's compelling history from the 19th century to the present day. This highly illustrated guide presents a wide variety of buildings ranging from Prairie style to Collegiate Gothic by historically important architects like Charles Coolidge; Daniel Burnham and Company; and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and landscape designs by Jens Jensen. Insightfully written by Jay Pridmore, Northwestern University: The Campus Guide reveals the stories behind the buildings, residences, and landscapes of the Northwestern campus. Exquisitely painted three-dimensional maps locate the buildings in nine architectural walks, covering both the Evanston and Chicago sections of the campus and exploring Northwestern's unique relationship with its urban surroundings.
