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.
