For Paul Goldberger, "architecture is, in a sense, where issues of public policy meet questions of esthetics." In these reflections on the major developments in contemporary architecture, he brilliantly explores the hypothesis. Goldberger evaluates trends in urban planning (or non-planning) and in public and residential design, taking us from Philip Johnson's controversial new A.T.&T. building and the landmark Villard houses in New York City to Michael Graves's cubist municipal building in Portland. The result is a comprehensive examination of the legacy of modernism and the changes brought about by postmodernism. Includes an Index. "An enlightened and erudite view, particularly of New York City . . . Goldberger cares." - Los Angeles Times
