9780271004150: Pittsburgh: An Urban Portrait

The author using the insights gained from his earlier studies as an architectural and urban historian, analyzes the city and paints a meticulously crafted portrait, neighborhood by neighborhood. This book creates a context for Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and 750 other buildings that constitute one of the greatest assemblages of architectural masterpieces in America. With 246 new photographs and 27 annotated maps, it is a detailed guidebook to these architectural riches that goes further to explore the economic, social, and intellectual life of a notoriously tirbulent and expansive city.
