Futurism, Art-Deco, the International Style, non-objective art, and other European-originated art forms radically changed the direction of American architecture in the twentieth century. Beginning with Rockefeller Center, the culmination of the Beaux-Arts tradition, Jordy examines in Volume 5 the influence of modern art on the architecture of George Howe, William Lescaze, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Louis I. Kahn.

William Jordy was a professor of mine at Brown University. I respected his way of looking at things with an extraordinary mix of passion and clear-eyed rationalism.
