Through the brilliant photography of Richard Schulman and an insightful introduction by New Yorker critic Paul Goldberger, this book celebrates the fifty architects who have reinvented architecture in the 20th and 2lst centuries. From Philip Johnson and I.M. Pei to Richard Meier and Daniel Libeskind, it emphasizes the magnetism of the architects as well as their creations. With highly personalized representations of the architects themselves and images and design plans of their best work, the book explores the architect-as-superstar phenomenon: what does it mean that architecture today has become a style statement?
