Reviews

"The architect [Minoru Yamasaki], as this deeply-researched, lucidly-written and handsomely-illustrated book shows, was driven, brilliant and insecure. And he was exploring paths -- particularly our emotional response to architecture and architects' search for inspiration from the past -- we are still traveling down today." "--Blair Kamin, Chicago Tribune
"Gyure does his subject justice. His adept presentation allows us to think anew about Yamasaki's legacy. Gyure provides a wealth of insight on the architect's values and his approach to design, and he reveals the complex, conflicted nature of his career."--Richard Longstreth, George Washington University
"Minoru Yamasaki was one of the brightest lights in the extraordinary galaxy of mid-20th century architectural talent. We have waited a long time for an adequate re-appraisal of his work, but this meticulously researched and judiciously rendered account will firmly re-establish his reputation."--Robert Bruegmann, University of Illinois at Chicago
