about

Known for her well-reasoned and passionately held beliefs about architecture, Ada Louise Huxtable has captivated readers across the country for decades, in the process becoming one of the best known critics in the United States. Her brilliance over so many years is unmatched, and her range has always been vast-from a plea to save a particular architectural treasure to an ongoing discussion about whether modern architecture is dead. Her keen eye and vivid writing have reinforced to readers how important architecture is and why it continues to be both controversial and fascinating.

Since so much of her writing has been in newspapers, it has quickly become unavailable to her many fans. On Architecture will bring together her best work from the New York Times, New York Review of Books, her more recent essays in the Wall Street Journal, and her various books. She is personally selecting and organizing the pieces into sections like "Art and Culture" and "The Art of Architecture," and is revising them as needed to bring them up to date. Whether you love modern architecture or desire a return to Beaux Arts design, this book will give you insight into the mind and heart of a critic who has artfully brought the discussion of architecture, architects and our environment to readers for five decades.
