Remaking American Places uses unpublished material to tell the story of 20th century architecture, planning and historic preservation and many of the amazing people involved - Eliel Saarinen, Lewis Mumford, Frank Lloyd Wright and Carl Feiss. Feiss' career spanned the Depression and the economic and social upheavals of the '50s to the '90s. He advised Roosevelt's Brain Trust. He rallied generals to solve wartime defense housing and aviation problems. He helped shape modern architectural and planning education. He wrote Section 701 of the Housing Act of 1954 that launched modern planning, creating demand for trained planners. He invented many of the tools of modern historic preservation and was an early voice for the environment. His vision resonates today. Over his long career, Feiss helped shape the futures of cities as diverse as Charleston, SC; Savannah, San Juan, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. Honored by the American Institute of Certified Planners, the American Institute of Architects, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the US Department of the Interior and uncounted communities, Feiss made America's places better.
