The name of Frederick Law Olmstead remains well known as our first and finest designer of public parks and green spaces, particularly Central Park in Manhattan. Few mention his close friend and sometime collaborator Henry Hobson Richardson, an architect once celebrated as the best in America, who helped pull our national architecture out of the quagmire of Victorian gingerbread ornament and reiterations of the Parthenon. As he did in Architecture's Odd Couple: Frank Lloyd Wright and Philip Johnson, Hugh Howard again creates a fascinating, highly readable dual portrait that brings out the best in these brilliant designers who defined our built culture in the post Civil War era.
