A classic book authored by the foremost architectural historian in America, this fully illustrated history of American architecture and city planning is based on Vincent Scully's conviction that architecture and city planning are inseparably linked and must therefore be treated together. He defines architecture as a continuing dialogue between generations which creates an environment across time. This definitive survey extends beyond the cities themselves to the American scene as a whole, which has inspired the reasonable balanced, closed and ordered forms, and above all the probity, that he feels typifies American architecture.
Vincent Scullyentered Yale University at 16 years of age and earned a Bachelor’s degree in English before serving as a Marine during World War II. He returned to Yale to pursue both Master’s and Ph.D. degrees, and went ton to become an extraordinarily distinguished and prominent professor at Yale for over sixty years. He is considered to be the most influential architectural historians in the U.S. and is well-known for emphasizing community within the realm of architecture. Scully has published numerous books and essays over the years, receiving honors such as the National Medal of Arts and the self-inspired Vincent Scully Prize given by the National Building Museum.
