Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy-to-read & very informative. Mumford writes the most beautiful desctriptions I've ever seen on the following:
1. Why the Brooklyn Bridge is such a marvel.
2. The genius of Louis Sullivan
3. Why & how American-style architecture (as opposed to all the classical revival stuff popularized by The White City in 1893) never took fruit up to the time of this book in 1935 (because 2 of its 3 practitioners died young - HH Richardson & John Root - & because the 3rd one - Louis Sullivan - had poor personal skills that cost him clients, among other problems). The 3 together could have made a difference, but the hill was too steep to climb for just one of them alone.

The abiility to see the patterns in current civilization and how it affects society in culture, institutions and the built environment is the genius of Lewis Mumford. As a follow-on to Sticks and Stones, this is a valuable piece of architecture and even intellectual history of America.
