This is the only English language text that describes the Beaux-Arts teaching method of architectural design, a rigorous method and style that was a leading force in early 20th century American architecture before being swept away by the rising popularity of Modernism. Originally published as a series of articles in "Pencil Points" magazine, this original early addition is extremely scarce.
