Professor Abramson November 17, 2021

Choose a Topic

 Select your topic, whether the name of a building, or an architect. It may be something you discussed in class, or perhaps something you came across in a journal article or a book, such as:

  For example, the Rookery Building, Chicago, 1888, designed by Burnham & Root

Search tips:  be sure to search the name of the building and the architects, but think    about additional keywords. What  architectural style is this? Where is it situated? Are there specific features to this building that might be worth searching?  Was anyone else involved in the construction or perhaps redesign of this building?
