This examination of William E. Lescaze's fifty-year architectural career makes a significant contribution to the history of the inception and development of modernism in the United States. Winner of the Art Alliance Press Award, Lorraine Lanmon's study emphasizes Lescaze's role in the introduction of the European modern style of the 1920s to the East Coast of the United States, documents his work from the formative period of modernism in Western Europe through its early development in the United States, and concludes with his post-war work to his death in 1969.
