Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0847819787, Hardcover)Morris Lapidus designed more than 500 retail stores, hotels, and apartments during his 60-year career as an architect. The work, chronicled in his new autobiography, "Too Much Is Never Enough", is a testament to his roots in set and costume design for theater and to the glamour he brought to the most basic buildings and interiors. In an age when appropriation was not the rage, Lapidus pioneered this signature element of post-modernism, combining details of French Provincial and Italian Romanesque architecture with whimsical ornament and an unrestrained use of color. Lapidus' writing, while a bit self-aggrandizing, is sweet and surprisingly engaging., making the book a delight all the way around.
