Description
Internationally known for her well-reasoned and passionately held beliefs about architecture, Ada Louise Huxtable is America's preeminent architecture critic and the winner, in 1969, of the first Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. This book gathers together the best of her writing on architecture, from her 1962 piece in the New York Times on Le Corbusier's Carpenter Center at Harvard to essays in the New York Review of Books and more recent writings in the Wall Street Journal. Throughout, Huxtable bears witness to radical and unprecedented changes in architecture through the 20th century and discusses the best (and worst) architects and building projects.

"Huxtable's work remains the gold standard of criticism—and not just the architectural variety—because she brings to the job a rare combination of aesthetic certitude and roving curiosity.... Review by review, essay by persuasive essay, she erects an impressive structure supported by the force of sheer reasonableness. She applauds economy but detests cheapness, appreciates expressivity but abhors showiness, and above all demands that a building make sense. For a colleague less than half her age, it is awesome to observe her pronouncing judgment on elements of New York City that have come to seem immemorial."—NYTBR
