The newest title in the Princeton Architectural Press Campus Guide series takes readers on a tour of Illinois Institute of Technology, one of the landmarks of modern American architecture. With a master plan and twenty renowned buildings by Mies van der Rohe, IIT has long been a pilgrimage site for architects and students of design. Thousands of visitors arrive each year to see International Style masterpieces such as S. R. Crown Hall, home of IIT's College of Architecture and one of Mies's greatest works.

Today, IIT is in the midst of an exciting new chapter in its design history. A new student center designed by Rem Koolhaas and his Office for Metropolitan Architecture has once again put IIT at the forefront of the design world. Meanwhile, a new master plan for the campus, new landscaping, and a residence-hall complex by Helmut Jahn have reinvigorated student life and revitalized the surrounding community of Chicago's South Side.

Featuring archival images of the Mies buildings as well as newly commissioned photographs of IIT's latest additions, this beautifully produced guide presents a comprehensive architectural walk through America's most distinguished modern campus.


Franz Schulze is the Betty Jane Schultz Hollender Professor of Art, Emeritus, at Lake Forest College. He is a contributing editor to Art News, and the author of many books including Mies van der Rohe: A Critical Biography and Philip Johnson: Life and Work. Richard Barnes is an architectural photographer based in San Francisco. His numerous publications include San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Bernard Maybeck: Visionary Architect.
