Superstars are on hand to contribute to Architects on Architects (McGraw Hill, £24), billed as '24 essays on influence and inspiration'.
Contributors include Tadao Ando on Le Corbusier, Cesar Pelli on Eero Saarinen, and Richard Meier on Frank Lloyd Wright. One surprise is that the runner-up to Corb in the number of citations is Paul Rudolph, subject of four essays by architects as diverse as Lord Foster and Robert Stern.Is this a sign of a long overdue revival in Rudolph's fortunes? Will any publisher reissue the wonderful big book of his drawings? Will anyone write a definitive monograph? Now is surely the time.
