A groundbreaking book about a little known, but soon to be world acclaimed, master architect, Lilian J. Rice.
This is the first ever published account of a lady architect who not only survived but thrived in the male dominated profession of architecture during the darkest years of the Great Depression. The book crosses three worlds of traditional scholarship, aesthetics and story telling. It retells Rice's story, her rise to success, how she designed for many Hollywood celebrities and the world's wealthy achievers, and how she died of ovarian cancer when she was at the top of her game.
This book is the only authoritative account of this amazing architect who deserves her fitting place among the world's most celebrated women like Amelia Earhart, Georgia O'Keefe, and Coco Chanel.
