Northwestern University: The Campus Guide takes readers on a vivid trip through this campus's compelling history from the 19th century to the present day. This highly illustrated guide presents a wide variety of buildings ranging from Prairie style to Collegiate Gothic by historically important architects like Charles Coolidge; Daniel Burnham and Company; and Skidmore, Owings & Merill and landscape designs by Jens Jensen. Insightfully written by Jay Pridmore, Northwestern University: The Campus Guide reveals the stories behind the buildings, residences, and landscapes of the Northwestern campus. Exquisitely painted three-dimensional maps locate the buildings in nine architectural walks, covering both the Evanston and Chicago sections of the campus and exploring Northwestern's unique relationship with its urban surroundings.


Jay Pridmore is an architectural historian who has written numerous books, including several on the Chicago area, most prominently Chicago Architecture and Design and Sears Tower.

(Photographer) Peter Kiar is a photographer based in Chicago who has extensive experience working for nonprofit and corporate organizations
