Edward Durell Stone: A Son's Untold Story of a Legendary Architect [9780847835683]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A personal and authoritative biography of one of the most controversial figures of twentieth-century architecture, written by the architect's son. Architect Edward Durell Stone was both celebrated and scorned, and led a life that was both triumphant and embittered. Among the iconic projects for which Stone is responsible are The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. But a negative reception among the architectural community often accompanied his popular and commercial successes, a double edge that continues to inform his legacy. Author Hicks Stone, Edward Durell Stone's son, not only addresses a body of work that has been largely neglected if not outright misunderstood but also explores a complex, multidimensional, and often turbulent life.
AUTHOR: Hicks Stone is the youngest son of architect Edward Durell Stone and a practicing architect in New York City.
