THE GROUNDBREAKERS: ARCHITECTS IN AMERICAN HISTORY -- THEIR PLACES AND TIMES. Charles E. Dagit, Jr. Transaction Publishers, New Brunswick, 2015. 282 pp. with 243 ills. 26 x 19 cm. LC 2014-38824 ISBN 9781412856140 In English.
Publisher's description: If there is anything to be learned from the history of American architecture it is that it reflects the American adventure in creativity and inventiveness, and the desire to be unique and expressive. In The Groundbreakers, Charles E. Dagit, Jr. examines pioneering American architects and the historical events and trends that gave rise to their achievements. These architects, the caliber of Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry, created their own distinct, personal styles, and represented the rich heritages of their specific geographical regions. The American pioneer spirit of individualism is alive and well in the architectural world, and like other American innovations, architecture as practiced in the United States is constantly renewing itself and finding new ways to capture the imagination. This book will be of interest to historians, architects, and students in American studies. Illustrations add dimension to the author's observations.
