Summary
Long regarded as a showcase of nineteenth-century and Art Deco architecture, Cincinnati has enjoyed a real resurgence of its architectural splendor with recent buildings from such noted designers as Frank Gehry, Michael Graves, and Zaha Hadid. Cincinnati's architecture is a testament to the historical importance of the city itself. Bringing the city's rich architectural history to life in luminous photographs by noted photographer Alice Weston, supplemented by historical images and absorbing sidebars, Architecture in Cincinnati captures the beauty of the Queen City and the spirit of individual buildings and unique urban settings. Architecture in Cincinnati traces the city's development from the first town plans of the 1780s to the dramatic skyline of today. It is a fascinating story of patrons, politicians, architects, engineers, and planners building a vibrant city. Architecture in Cincinnati is an authoritative introduction to a typical-yet remarkable-American city
