About the Author

Martin Filler was born in 1948 and received degrees in Art History from Columbia. Nearly 1,100 of his writings have been published in more than thirty-five journals, magazines, and newspapers in the US, Europe, and Japan during his five-decade career. Since 1985 his essays on modern architecture have appeared regularly in The New York Review of Books. His first collection of those pieces, Makers of Modern Architecture (2007), was issued in Spanish as La arquitectura moderna y sus creadores (2012), followed by Makers of Modern Architecture, Volume II (2013). Filler was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2003. He and his wife, the architectural historian Rosemarie Haag Bletter, were guest curators of the Whitney Museum of American Art exhibition “High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design” (1985) and wrote the documentary films Beyond Utopia (1983), Arata Isozaki (1985), and Stirling (1987). They live in New York City and Southampton.
