Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a brief catalog of landmark structures in Milwaukee, a city with an enormously important and beautiful building stock that also maintains its historical density. This book features about 150 structures within the city limits, ranging from public structures to churches to great mansions of gilded-age wealth.

Although NOT an AIA publication, this small book is written and published in familiar AIA style. The entries are organized by geographic area, and are presented with a brief descriptive essay and small black & white photograph. The buildings are mostly what I would call historic, but there are also important modern examples included. The photography is purely functional. There are no plans or elevations, and maps are simple.

It's a small book, so the catalog is quite selective. It's not anything approaching a comprehensive survey, but it's a nice, representative sample of Milwaukee's wonderful architecture. With a strong culture of preservation, Milwaukee is a city that deserves a comprehensive catalog of considerable length. This book fills the role relatively well while we wait for that still-to-be-published larger volume.

Independently published in 1995, structures added to the cityscape after that date (obviously) are not included. Readers familiar with Dorsey & Dilts' Guide to Baltimore Architecture (Tidewater Publishers, 1997) will feel an immediate similarity between the two books.
