Editorial Reviews

"As always, Rybczynski has an eye for the telling detail and an ear for the felicitous phrase."--Eric P. Nash, New York Times Book Review "In his absorbing and accessible book-length essay on the relationship between fashion and building design...Rybczynski argues eloquently that, as in fashion, a building's form is molded by the tastes of its age."--One: Design Matters "Rybczyniski takes a seemingly whimsical topic--the role of fashion in architecture--and lightly teases from it some discomfiting truths."--Kirkus (starred review) "A thoughtful and thought-provoking look at how buildings reflect the desires of their age."--The Boston Globe
