After critiquing--and infuriating--the art world with The Painted Word, award-winning author Tom Wolfe shared his less than favorable thoughts about modern architecture in From Bauhaus to Our Haus.

In this examination of the strange saga of twentieth century architecture, Wolfe takes such European architects as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and Bauhaus art school founder Walter Gropius to task for their glass and steel box designed buildings that have influenced--and infected--America's cities.

Review:

"A search-and-destroy mission against architectural pretensions . . . a funny book." --New York

"Full of insight . . . marvelously right." --People

"Wolfe's delightfully witty, biting history of modern architecture is a scintillating high comedy of big money, manners, and massive manipulation of public taste." --Publishers Weekly

"No wonder . . . this book is the hottest topic in Manhattan's architectural salons." --The New York Times Book Review

"Tom Wolfe has squeezed a funny tale out of glass and stone. . . hilarious." --The Wall Street Journal

"Sharp serpent's-tooth wit, useful cultural insight, and snazzy zip! pop! writing." --Playboy
