I love inter-library loan (ILL). Unfortunately I have to kiss two books good-bye, unread. While digging through a series of works on the trials and tribulations of the profession (and practice) of architecture, two books have waited their turn in queue. That turn never came.
Pfammatter's "The making of the Modern Architect and Engineer" and Slaton's "Reinforced Concrete and the Modernization of American Building, 1900-1930" deserve consideration and constrast. It seems that I'm not going to be the one to do it. At least not yet. I certainly intend on returning to the subject at some point... These two may be worth the purchase.
