The first time in paperback, Greene &The Passion and the Legacy is a comprehensive overview of the architectural careers of Charles and Henry Greene. Randell Makinson, the foremost authority on their works, has organized their projects into recognizable periods and styles, beginning in 1894 in Pasadena, rising to their masterworks created from 1907 to 1909, and culminating in their separate but cooperative careers in the teens. "It is the yin and yang that the brothers brought to each project which is cause for that undeniable spirit pervading each of their joint works," says Makinson. The Greene brothers' sensual blending of architecture, landscape, furnishings, and the decorative arts creates the hallmark of their Craftsman style. Color photography throughout the book highlights their furniture and lighting designs as well as their classic bungalow exteriors; also included are some important archival images and architectural plans.
Randell L. Makinson, Hon. AIA, is the foremost authority on American architects Greene and Greene, having studied their works since 1954, and is director emeritus of the Gamble House. His books Greene and Greene: Architecture as a Fine Art and Greene and Greene: Furniture and Related Designs (both Gibbs Smith, Publisher) have been continuously in print for more than two decades. He lives in Pasadena.
