This is the first biography of 19th century America's greatest architect and the first full-color treatment of his rich and marvelous work. This compelling volume situates the architect's life and work within the shifting context of post-Civil War society. As a member of that generation of giants who brought American culture to maturity in the 1870s, Richardson created an aesthetic distinct from its European origins, an architecture rooted in the American land and expressive of the new American urban forms.
