All working architects leave behind a string of monuments to themselves in the form of buildings they have designed, but what about the final spaces that architects themselves will occupy? Most of these graves are modest, yet this book demonstrates that they still have a story to tell. Shown in color photographs with short texts, the 200 sites covered here include those of Frank Lloyd Wright, secretly exhumed in Wisconsin and reburied in Arizona; Ray and Charles Eames, interred anonymously in the family plot; Eero Saarinen, whose humble placard is practically vanishing into the ground; Thomas Jefferson, buried beneath an obelisk of his own design; and Charles L'Enfant, whose memorial slab overlooks the city he established, Washington D.C.
