Pressestimmen

"Building Seagram...is something of a joint biography: a history of this stately Park Avenue landmark that many consider the pinnacle of postwar architecture in New York, rendered through the lens of her vivid memories of its invention and of her privileged early years as the daughter of the liquor baron Samuel Bronfman, who founded the Seagram distilling empire. The book reveals many new details about a building that remains among the most studied of the modern era." --Mark Lamster, "New York Times"--Mark Lamster "New York Times "

Winner of the 2013 American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence (PROSE), in the Architecture & Urban Planning category.--PROSE Awards"American Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence" (02/07/2014)

[Lambert;s] handsomely illustrated book, "Building Seagram" (Yale University Press), chronicles a golden moment in architectural history Robert Fulford, "National Post"--Robert Fulford"National Post" (04/09/2013)"

Even if your coffee table isn t as clean-lined and elegant as the Seagram Building, you re going to want this book on there. Ted Loos, "Inside Sotheby s"--Ted Loos"Inside Sotheby's" (04/22/2013)"

The history of the New York building that many, including this writer, consider the masterpiece of the 20th-century architecture is related here by the person who knows the story best and was largely responsible for its genesis " Stanley Abercrombie, "Interior Design"--Stanley Abercrombie"Interior Design" (04/15/2013)"

Lambert s book is an exquisitely detailed chronicle of how the skyscraper came to be. Christopher Hawthorne, "Architect Magazine"--Christopher Hawthorne "Architect Magazine ""

Lambert s tour of the genesis and life of the building is an engrossing one, offering a superb account of both the unglamorous planning issues and the specific design choices involved in the project. Anthony Paletta, " Architectural Record"--Anthony Paletta "Architectural Record ""

Sumptuous. . . . No one could tell the history of the most seminal office building of the 20th century as well as Lambert. . . . An exemplary architectural monograph. Dietrich Neumann, "Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians"--Dietrich Neumann"Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians" (11/21/2013)"

In its own modest way, this monograph on modernism's most acclaimed tower is as elegant and refined as Mies van der Rohe's glass temple on New York's Park Avenue. The author is the daughter of one-time Seagram chairman Samuel Bronfman, who asked her to find the best architect for the job. The period photographs are exquisite; the tales of Mies at work are a primer on how discipline can translate tobeauty. John King, "San Francisco Chronicle"--John King "San Francisco Chronicle ""

Her account captures some of the excitement one feels when one approaches the slender tower for the first time. Christopher Turner, "London Review of Books"--Christopher Turner"London Review of Books" (01/06/2014)"
