The Snibbes--she a designer and he an architect, a former associate of Edward D. Stone--have done a bold thing: they have produced an old-fashioned picture book of Modernism as a gesture of defiance against what they call 'a deluge of Postmodernism propaganda', which they believe to be devaluing architecture in the U.S. The result is touchingly nostalgic: many years have gone by since I have seen so heartfelt a championing of, for example, John Carl Warnecke & Associates' Hennepin County Government Centre in Minneapolis of 1977...
...A flood of admiration for old-fashioned idealism and for simple delight in new forms and spaces is projected through double page spreads...
There are...some pleasant surprises: there are architects here, most noticeably ABK and Powell & Moya, who have never received the critical attention they deserve for their later work...
...a fun and healthy book for a beginner. (Architect 2002-03-01)
