Maya Lin : A Strong Clear Vision( Visual )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Academy Award winner reveals the contentious origins of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and tells the inspiring story of its creator, a 21-year-old Yale architecture student. Beating out some of the most prestigious architecture films from around the world, Lin's plan was selected from over 1,000 different designs, a giant victory for such a young and unknown artist. But little did Maya Lin know that her battle was just beginning. In Washington to defend her design, Lin came up against a mighty opposition, challenging indignant veterans and a hostile Congress to ultimately prevail with her emotional 'Wall.' And what began as one of the country's most bitterly disputed public monuments became one of the world's inspirational and frequently visited memorials. In this riveting and dramatic portrait, renowned filmmaker Freida Lee Mock combines interviews and archival footage to chronicle Lin's story -- from its origins, dominated by her David vs. Goliath battle over the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to a career designing other memorials, always with an innate talent, and resolute courage." -- Back of container

Real places : an unconventional guide to America's generic landscape by Grady Clay( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's "good address" may be tomorrow's "changing neighborhood," with "drug scene" and even "ghost town" not too far off. The "edge of town" may be overrun with "speculative sites." A "depressed area" could be turning into a "growth area" and "lovers' lane" into a "trouble spot." In these "generic man-made sites," urban observer and commentator Grady Clay discovers the key to understanding our cultural geography. Although they can't be found by name on most maps, these places exist in every city and do similar work. Defined by cultural, political, and economic needs rather than any natural boundary, "Fall Color Country," "The Good Address," and "Disaster Area" are primarily creations of the human mind. These are just some of the places Clay takes us through in this delightful, original guidebook to our ever-changing man-made landscape
