Architecture in Cincinnati traces the city's development from the first town plans of the 1780s to the city that it is today, renowned for its dramatic architectural achievements. It is a fascinating story of patrons, politicians, architects, engineers, and planners building a city.

Architecture in Cincinnati is the first chronological history of the area to focus on architecture and the built environment. Noted environmental artist Alice Weston's luminous color photographs capture the beauty of the Queen City and the spirit of individual buildings, bridges, and urban places. Her photographs are supplemented with fascinating historical images from the Cincinnati Historical Society Library/Cincinnati Museum Center.

This informative and lavishly illustrated book will inspire renewed pride of place in residents of the city. Nonresidents and students of architectural and urban history will enjoy this authoritative introduction to a remarkable yet typical American city.

The oversize (9x12, 368 pages) book is printed in full color. It is the perfect gift for friends, family, and clients.
