Dan Cruickshank

Starting with their origins in Chicago, the architectural historian Dan Cruikshank tells the story of the skyscrapers, the architects and engineers who created them, and the city that nurtured the bold, new structures in the 1890s. He begins with the early career of John Wellborn Root, and later devotes a chapter to Root’s pioneering, steel-framed Reliance Building – a pivotal structure in the development of modern architecture.
