    For more than half a century, Ada Louise Huxtable's keen eye and vivid writing have reinforced to readers how important architecture is and why it continues to be both controversial and fascinating - making her one of the best-known critics in the world. On Architecture collects the best of Huxtable's writing from the New York Times, New York Review of Books, Wall Street Journal, and her various books. In these selections, Huxtable examines the 20th century's most important architectural masters and projects.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Ada Louise Huxtable was a perceptive, articulate and interesting observer of the built environment. While some of these essays have proven to be a bit dated, hearing her perspective over 50 years is fascinating. Then there is the narration. The narrator continually mispronounces names, is jerky in his pronunciation, seems to have little or no understanding of foreign words and is embarrassingly ignorant of even the basic terminology in architecture. I had to stop listening because his errors got too irritating to continue.
