Publisher's description: The publishing industries' production of ubiquitous volumes on "StArchitects" does little to inform society the benefits good architecture can have on our everyday lives. The small, regional architectural firms working throughout the United States and abroad have a more profound effect on the built environment than the cultural imperialism thrust upon us, harking back to the Pre-Modernist movement of the last century. Looking back 50-60 years, we can find architects such as Bruce Goff, Jack Hilmer, and Al Beadle to see how their work influences architectural culture and generations of young students. The Unshakeable Search for Architecture, about the life work of Architect Michael P. Johnson, speaks directly of his regional buildings from his native Wisconsin through his work after his migration to Arizona. It also expands upon his work in New York, Colorado, and California, and further in Canada, Mexico, and Italy.
