Louisville is one of the overlooked gems of American architecture, a city of Southern charm and grace with a catalog of buildings by such masters as D.H. Burnham, Bruce Goff, and Herb Greene. An important destination for people interested in everything from colonial to postmodern architecture, this riverfront city is historically rich, while being beautifully planned with a boulevard and park system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.

The Louisville Guide takes readers on a journey through the city, describing its most notable buildings while providing a complete overview of its architectural history. Essays by Louisville scholars Grady Clay and Edie Bingham add color and life to the story of the city and its makers. From Carrere and Hastings's Memorial Hall to Michael Graves's Humana Building, The Louisville Guide offers visitors and residents alike never-before published scholarship of the city's rich architectural heritage.


At the University of Kentucky, Gregory A. Luhan is an Assistant Professor and David Mohney is the Dean of the College of Architecture, while Dennis Domer is Helen Edwards Abell Chair in Historic Preservation.
