"Paul R Williams, Architect" First Edition Book


Paul R Williams, Architect by Karen E. Hudson. Rizzoli, New York, 1993. Fantastic monograph of a noted African American L.A. architect. He was the first black 240 pp. including project lists and bibliography. Prolific career extended from the 1920s to the 1970s. His vast body of built work stretches across the world from Paris and Colombia to Washington, D.C., New York, and Memphis. The LA area was his personal and professional focus. He overcame incredible prejudice in an all-white field, and became the first African American "Fellow of the AIA." He designed over 3,000 projects, including the Jetsons-like theme building at LA International Airport, Saks Fifth Avenue and W. & J. Sloane's department stores in Beverly Hills, the famous Beverly Hills and Ambassador hotels, and Chasen's and Perino's restaurants.
