Modern Architecture in St. Louis chronicles the exciting evolution of architecture in the St. Louis area between 1948 and 1973 with insightful essays by established architectural scholars on the significant aspects of modern architecture in St. Louis and of the Washington University School of Architecture in the flowering of mid-century American modernism.

Vivid archival photographs and drawings illustrate the authors' historical analyses. Also included are statements about the School of Architecture written by distinguished alumni and faculty, including Fumihiko Maki, a former faculty member. This volume is a landmark study of architectural history that reveals a rich pocket of little known American creativity.
