Praise

“Martin Filler’s Makers of Modern Architecture, Volume III, from Antoni Gaudí to Maya Lin, is as moving as the other two editions in the series: not only are his portraits individualized, but their particularities are given broad and vast depth in history….Filler has a literate writing style [that]…could be better suited for creative literature because of the vivid word picture he draws of individuals, their works, and the generalized historical fabrics in which they belong….Filler carefully weighs the religious, social, personal, aesthetic, and political strains of his subjects, so we get a crammed-full picture, a three-dimensional image.” —Suzanne Frank, The Architects Newspaper
 
“Filler’s…concern is to show why these subjects remain of perennial interest to us—or, in some cases, do not. There is a great deal of pleasantly opinionated revisionism…Those who are interested in the way that architecture reveals the vagaries of the human heart will not be disappointed by this acerbic, occasionally poignant collection.” —Michael J. Lewis, Architectural Record
