Since the crumbling of the World Trade Center, architecture has been at the center of our attention. We have watched the rapid destruction of Hurricane Katrina and the slow Gulf rebuilding process; the real estate boom and bust; the development of green architecture; debates over avant-garde building designs, and witnessed the high price paid for crumbling infrastructure. Blair Kamin, the veteran, Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture columnist for the Chicago Tribune, has witnessed it all. In Terror & Wonder, he steps back and reflects on architecture in the post-9/11 age. Accessible; insightful; a fine choice for crossover readers.
