Praise

“Goldberger’s seemingly-effortless prose takes us through the frenzy of the building boom to the burst of the housing bubble, from Dubai to Chicago, and every starchitect-crossed destination in between.” —FastCompany

“Paul’s greatest contribution is his writing about cities. How architecture hits the pavement, how projects relate to their surroundings, how physical change affects how we feel about places is his genius.” —Kent Barwick, President of the Municipal Art Society of New York

“[Paul Goldberger is] a great journalist whose writing has been invaluable in promoting a deeper and more intelligent understanding of urbanism, city making and sustainable urban development.” —Darren Walker, Rockefeller Foundation

“[Paul Goldberger’s criticism is] at once elevated and street smart, able to convey sweeping cultural meaning yet precise in its description of architectural detail.” —Blair Kamin, architecture critic for the Chicago Tribune
