One-to-One #28 with Hugh Howard, author of ‘Architecture’s Odd Couple’


Architecture writer and historian Hugh Howard has written many books on American architecture, telling stories that meld design and cultural history together in highly accessible and humanistic ways.

His latest book, “Architecture’s Odd Couple: Frank Lloyd Wright and Philip Johnson“, tracks the fruitful and contentious relationship between the two architectural frenemies—beginning with Wright’s role in Johnson’s pivotal “Modern Architecture” exhibition at MoMA in 1932, up until Wright’s death in 1959. Through their relationship, Howard provides an excellent overview of midcentury architecture’s context in the United States, and personalizes the architectural giants in the process.
