Praise

Editors’ Fall Picks for 2021, Library Journal


“Sandfuture […] tackles architectural history’s canon directly. And it does so with the kind of brio and panache that seems absent from architectural writing these days.”
– The Architect’s Newspaper


“In Beal’s account, you hear about not just a tragic life, but the strange cultural history of the World Trade Center—what it came to mean, and how that meaning reflected the history of New York and the United States”
Open Source with Christopher Lydon


“This is a personable, erudite memoir that ambles through a series of theoretical and historical musings linked to the author’s emotional, intellectual and practical engagement with New York City”
– ArtReview


“It is not like any other book on architecture I have read. And that is a very good thing […] Beal has written a brilliant, often surprisingly personal, book that works as metaphor and, perhaps, as portent.”
- Edwin Heathcote, FT

“Beal is sympathetic, describing the Japanese-American architect’s battles with prejudice, pointing out the qualities of the many fine buildings he created across America, and bringing alive the ironies and tragedies of his career. […] His book is an unusual collage of narratives, but it provides rare insight into the making and experience of architecture.”
- Rowan Moore, The Observer
