yes Building Seagram
This “biography of a building“ is quite a page turner. Its Ms Phyllis Lambert’s memoir of her relationship with the building and stewardship of the iconic Seagram’s building. At 27 years old, Lambert was given the task of vetting the architect who would personify the identity of the Seagram’s whiskey distillers and basically enter in the modern age of architecture. Some of my favorite parts are, her descriptions of Phillip Johnson’s interior work throughout the project, one of the best analysis of lighting in an architectural space ever written and the love, advocacy and passion that the Plaza space holds for her. Now that I have finished the book, I am actually missing it.
