Format: Hardcover
I have alway's thought the San Francisco City Hall was spectacular, as impressive inside as out. It is great to have a book on the architect of that building and many more, his buildings in the Federal Triangle are wonderful, classic, yet functional. This book has fantastic images and the text is fascinating. I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in spectacular architecture in the classical style.

This book is meticulously researched and organized. Anyone interested in Brown, history, architecture, classicism in America and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts should have this book nearby. I have been the US General Services Administration historic preservation representative for the Federal Triangle in Washington DC since 1998 and have turned repeatedly to Dr. Tilman's book since first published for information on the design and construction of the ICC/Connecting Wing/Labor complex, the influence of the atelier Laloux and Brown's other work in California. Dr. Tilman's research has proven even more productive than an extensive Historic Structures Report for this complex completed in 1988. Hats off to Dr. Tilman!

Format: Hardcover
Had Arthur Brown practiced architecture in New York CIty we would have seen many more biographies of him and his work by now. As it was, he chose to practice in his beloved San Francisio, bringing to it works of Classical grandeur such as the City Hall complex. He developed a nation-wide reputation in twentieth-century Classical architecture which, sadly, was eclipsed by the Modernists of the late twentieth century. Fortunately we now have this superlative monograph on him and his works. It is quite thorough, with a clear and lucid text accompanied with wonderful illustrations. Despite its relatively high price, the book is highly recommended for those with an interest in Classical architecture as practiced in the twentieth century outside of its center in New York City.
