9780292730434: Harwell Hamilton Harris

The last of the second-generation architects in Southern California, Harris, a native Californian and the son of an architect, was first struck by the power of building when he saw Wright's Hollyhock House in 1925. While he later worked with Schindler and Neutra, his work always reflected the organic roots of Wright, with details reflecting Maybeck and the Greene Brothers. This detailed account of his life and career follows Harris from California to Texas through his final years in North Carolina.

From the Back Cover:

"Harwell Harris would have been pleased with Lisa Germany's book. . . . The quality of the man permeates the work. It is honest, forthright architecture. It is void of tricks. It uses simple materials in an unself-conscious manner. It places priorities on the user. The emphasis on plan in his practice is the thread that takes us from project to project as Germany weaves the Harris tale." (Ray Kappe, FAIA, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians)

About the Author:

Lisa Germany has written widely on American architecture for Architectural Record, The New York Times, Harvard Design Magazine, Landscape Architecture, House and Garden and other journals.
