There is no greater and more distinct creative and intellectual tradition in America than that of the American architect. Faced with the daunting challenge of making the American dream manifest, the American architect from the founding of the United States has confronted and interpreted world architectural traditions to make them our own—to make them reflective of our unique American democracy.

Through in-depth research into unknown or until now lost photo and biographical archives, each volume in Acanthus' American Architect monograph series explores in an illustrated case-by-case format the pioneering work of an important American architect or firm now obscured by changes in taste and the ongoing ahistorical devastation of the built environment.

Biographical profiles of architects and their patrons are complimented by floor plans, exterior and interior period photographs of individual buildings and their histories.
