The Architecture of Howard Van Doren Shaw
This first ever comprehensive treatment of Shaw's work contains more than 200 historic photographs along with original architectural plans that reveal the diverse talents of an architect whose commissions throughout the Midwest included residential, commercial, and civic architecture. Shaw's career from 1869-1926 was largely overshadowed by his colleague Frank Lloyd Wright, partly due to his untimely death in 1926 and also to the perception of Shaw as a society architect. This book invites readers to discover an aspect of the Chicago school seldom explored -- how European influences and eclecticism transformed Midwestern prairie and the Arts and crafts movement in America.
