Editorial Reviews

Review

“Meticulously footnoted…this book provides an excellent foundation that should spur further scholarship.” (Eve M. Kahn - Period Homes)

“The handsome new book by architect Peter Pennoyer and historian Anne Walker will be a welcome addition to any architectural library…. The book is written in a clear, unambiguous style inviting to both the layperson and the trained historian.” (Mark A. Hewitt - Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians)

“An appetite for [viewing the interiors themselves] will surely be stimulated by [this] exquisite book…illustrated with stunning color photographs.” (Quest Magazine)

“The first book on one of the most productive and accomplished architectural firms of the first half of the twentieth century…a comprehensive, illuminating study.” (From House To Home)

“...Should stand as a model for future chronologists of architectural history...the best presentation I've seen to date.” (Home Garden Reviews)

“Gives the outsider a look inside the buildings that staked out a reputation the architects enjoy to this day.” (Christopher Gray - The New York Times)

Format: Hardcover
This book on Delano & Aldrich is a beautiful and well-researched monograph of an important early 20th century New York City architectural firm. Not only is it worth buying to look through, but I found the book very well written, thorough, and engaging. I would say it is a must-have for the architectural historian and enthusiast, as well as for anyone with an interest in the changing face of New York City in the early 20th century. Thoroughly researched and beautifully photographed, it covers the work of Delano & Aldrich from elegant club-houses to town and country houses, institutional buildings and LaGuardia Airport. The book presents the work of this important American architectural firm in a formal yet highly readable format - drawing on a vast amount of research, historical documentation including photographs and drawings, and rich contemporary color photographs. The text offers analytical description and historical context; the photographs speak for themselves of D&A's fascinating and varied body of work. Congratulations to its authors Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker!

What a fabulous insight into the Architecture firm of Delano & Adrich. This book with its beautiful photographs and engaging essay provide an invaluable tool for all architectural enthusiasts: from the average architecture buff to those involved in scholarly research.
I'm most impressed that the authors not only sought to perform research on the buildings themselves, but moreover, examined the partners and the social influences of the times. I feel we gain so much from the writers thru their experience of having read Delano's letters in archive at Yale!
This book should stand as a model for future chronologist of architectural history. It is truly a wonderful presentation - the best that I've seen published to date.
Congratulations.

I wish all books on noted architects where this good. Mr. Sterns preface at the beginning of the book is astute. This book is a perfect combination of archival and current photos and the history of the buildings are well researched and thorough. The color photos are vivid and well executed and the archival photos are well chosen. So many of these books just give you archival photos and are not researched as well as one would hope. This book is a blueprint for how these type of books should be presented. This beautiful book is well worth the money and at these prices that's high praise indeed.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While I agree this is the best available source right now on Delano and Aldrich, the book has some major problems. I especially do not like the fact that you need to search three different parts of the book for photographs and images of any particular project: color photos grouped at the start of the book, then small images alongside the main text, and then larger black and white photographs grouped at the end of the book.

Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker have successfully put together a well-rounded and intellectual anthology in their book The Architecture of Delano and Aldrich. This thoroughly illustrated book traverses the duo's career - from their beginnings in the renown traditional firm of Carrére and Hastings to their eclectic bouts with traditional architecture within their own firm. Like the Vitruvian ideal of beauty, for which Delano and Aldrich held fast to in their architecture, Pennoyer and Walker respect that maxim, and adhere to it throughout the full 200+ pages. This book would be a welcome addition to any private library.
