Summary

The turn of the century was one of the most creative and innovative periods in American architecture, a time of elaborate craftsmanship and functional simplicity when Louis Simpson's dictum, "Form follows function," became the new principle of architectural design. Jordy documents this marriage of technology and art in the buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles McKim, Louis Sullivan, Bernard Maybeck, Charles and Henry Greene, and Irving Gill.
