Revue de presse :

"This intimate biography of one of the most controversial figures of the modern movement was written by the architect's youngest son...Not only does the author do a fine job of detailing his father's achievements, many of which have been largely forgotten today, he writes honestly about the architect's career, relationships, and struggles." ~Metropolis Magazine

"This is a beautifully illustrated book to own and treasure and keep as a reference." ~Metro Magazine

“Notable book of 2011. This monograph, written by Stone’s sons, offers a personal and authoritative biography of this misunderstood architect who was celebrated in the mainstream press...Hicks Stone not only details his father's achievements but also writes honestly about the architect's career, relationships, and struggles with alcohol."~ Paul Makovsky, Designers & Books

“It’s a tome that seeks to lay a new foundation for understanding the architect who brought us Radio City Music Hall, the Museum of Modern Art, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the North Carolina Legislative Building. As the book’s flyleaf notes, Stone was both celebrated and scorned, and led a life that was both triumphant and embittered. This book by Edward Durell Stone’s youngest son promises to achieve similar glory, by raising a new curtain on one of the nation’s most original architects.” ~Architects and Artisans

"This biography of Ed Stone by his architect son Hicks is a highly personal story of the rather melodramatic life of an architect who came to exemplify the best and worst of the 1950's. Hicks Stone's book is a lovingly told and disarming story of his father, warts and all, an engaging read about an architect who may...be on the verge of a revival." ~Architectural Record

Edward Durell Stone: A Son’s Untold Story of a Legendary Architect provides a judiciously balanced and often unsparing assessment...” ~ The New York Review of Books

“Hicks Stone sees as an almost urgent need to record and persuasively celebrate a body of work now, when such a record is still possible. He sees it as his duty to be an insightful interpreter to the broader design community rather than to his father, which lends implicit poignancy to what is otherwise a fine, straightforward account.” ~ The Architect’s Newspaper

"The book is an elegant, image-filled volume that is fitting for the figure of Stone who looks beautifully comfortable in a finely tailored suit amidst the likes of President and Mrs. Kennedy...The pages of Hicks Stone's in-depth history are testament to the sophistication of Stone who could merge clean lines with complex forms and surfaces." ~Tropic Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur :

A personal and authoritative biography of one of the most controversial figures of twentieth-century architecture, written by the architect’s son. Architect Edward Durell Stone was both celebrated and scorned, and led a life that was both triumphant and embittered. Among the iconic projects for which Stone is responsible are The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. But a negative reception among the architectural community often accompanied his popular and commercial successes, a double edge that continues to inform his legacy. Author Hicks Stone, Edward Durell Stone’s son, not only addresses a body of work that has been largely neglected if not outright misunderstood but also explores a complex, multidimensional, and often turbulent life.
