More About Bertram Goodhue by Romy Wyllie
 
 
 
Overview
This book enlarges our understanding of Goodhue, neither fully researched nor justly appreciated until now, by examining his residential designs within the framework of his better-known ecclesiastical and secular projects. At the same time it takes a closer look at the man behind the drawing board. Covered here are twenty built and six unbuilt houses that provide new insight into the evolution of Goodhue's architecture during the 33-year period of his remarkable career. Although these projects made up only a small portion of his total work, they are rich in architectural expression. Though time has brought unavoidable changes to the buildings, Goodhue's legacy lives on. Philip Johnson has called Goodhue "America's leading architect of his day," and this book demonstrates clearly Goodhue's role in the modern movement and the place he merits in the history of architecture.
