KIRKUS REVIEW

This book on architecture by one of the greatest exponents of the modern, falls into two parts, -- life and opinions, (and these are decidedly decided), and vocational. He feels that the question of modern architecture versus period style is fundamentally not a question of architecture. ""It is a question of life versus stag-."" He discusses the effect of architecture on living; the follies of period imitation, the architect as artist, as business man; his qualifications, training and the practical problems that confront him. Intelligent -often opinionated.
