Description

"An intriguing look at how a creative, introspective child became a world-famous architect and artist." -Shelf Awareness The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, is one of the most famous pieces of civic architecture in the world. But most people are not as familiar with the reserved college student who entered and won the design competition to build it. This accessible biography tells the story of Maya Lin, from her youth as a first-generation American to her struggle to stick with her vision of the memorial to the wide variety of works she has created since then. The carefully researched text, paired with ample photos, crosses multiple interests-American history, civic activism, art history, and cultural diversity-as well as providing an important contribution to the current discussion of the role of women and minorities in society. "A reading experience as thoughtful and emotionally connected as one of Lin's installations." -School Library Journal (starred review) "A finely designed, endlessly compelling examination of the life and work of one of America's most notable architects." -Booklist (starred review)
