WHO INSPIRED THE WHO''S WHO OF ARCHITECTURE? With the passion of first discovery, today''s most notable architects share their most moving and formative encounters with the art and influence of mentors, models, and heroes. Full of spellbinding meetings with legendary figures and outstanding works, told by those most touched by their greatness, this grand voyage among the pinnacles of architecture gives you intimate access to the most original structures and minds of our time. Often you will sit beside geniuses at the moment storied works came into consciousness. Frequently you will share seminal exchanges between great mentors and gifted students. Always you will be entertained by true tales of the origins and transmutations of brilliance.

Kahn Antoine Predock on The Alhambra Raj Rewal on Fatehpur Sikri Richard Rogers on Maison de Verre Der Scutt on Paul Rudolph Robert A. M. Stern on Paul Rudolph Hans Busso von Busse on Paul Rudolph Here''s a profound, stirring study of how the world''s greatest architects influenced the lives and work of others--told in the disciples'' own dramatic and awe-filled words. They discuss the career-inspiring achievements of their mentors, designers of some of the most famous structures on Earth. The contributors delve into their mentors'' design philosophy, and tell you how the genius of the masters affected their careers, their goals, and their lives. This candid personal testimony imparts the emotion, inspiration, and wonderment of architecture and vividly demonstrates the power of mentorship and the potential it can unleash. Each original essay is beautifully illustrated with photographs (most in full color) of both the architect''s work and that of his or her mentors, providing a visually stunning forum for comparison and learning. In these pages you will hear from Richard Meier on his fruitful association with Frank Lloyd Wright. You will share Diana Agrest''s appreciation for the cinematic and structural genius of Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein. You will read Tadao Ando''s account of his enthrallment with Le Corbusier--and the Chappelle Notre Dame du Haut. Open this book and meet masters of architecture--Mies van der Rohe, Louis Kahn, William van Alen, H. H. Richardson, Eero Saarinen--and their admirers--Cesar Pelli, Michael Graves, Hugh Hardy, Charles Gwathmey, William Pedersen, and 19 more of the great names of today''s architecture. In addition, Architects on Architects lets you appreciate great work and great architects from contrasting perspectives. No fewer than four of today''s leading architects--Norman Foster, Der Scutt, Robert A. M. Stern, and Hans Busso von Busse--share awe (and differing reactions) before the mastery of Paul Rudolph. You will also view the highly influential work of modernist Le Corbusier from more than one window. An ideal book for architecture aficionados, ARCHITECTS ON ARCHITECTS captures the soul, inspiration, and majesty of architecture. On architects and by architects, it is a work that builders, developers, and architects themselves will feel compelled to own.
