"No architect did more to shape the architectural devolution of the 1960's than Charles Moore. While Moore's built work was intimate in scale, his writings were bold, joining grand historical themes with popular trends, putting modern architecture back in touch with modern life."--Robert A. M. Stern, Dean, Yale School of Architecture, Yale University
Charles W. Moore, one of America's best known architects, is O'Neil Ford Professor of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin.
"With the exception of Robert Venturi, no American architect of the post-war period has written with more erudition, elegance, insight, and wit than Charles W. Moore." - The New York Times Book Review; "Moore was a feisty and incisive critic who wasn't content to traffic in pieties." - Tom Vanderbilt, Interiors; "Both a testament to a highly individual, rich, and varied intellectual, and an insight into American architectural history in the second half of the twentieth century." - Jeremy Melvin, The Architects' Journal"
