Educated at Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania, Williams was grounded in the Beaux-Arts tradition, and became a confirmed Modernist. Beginning with his first residential design, a home for Frank Sinatra, Williams used a spectrum of materials--natural and industrial--to create structures that had the elegance and simplicity of Modern aesthetics combined with a textural and chromatic sensitivity to the desert. With more than 120 photographs by Julius Shulman, Maynard Parker, Tim Street-Porter, Dan Chavkin, and David Glomb; images of Williams's renderings, drawings, and artwork; and insightful essays by Lauren Bricker, Elizabeth Edwards Harris, Erin Hyman, Volker Welter, Wim de Wit, and Sidney Williams, the book reveals the span and depth of Williams's fifty-year career in architecture."@en ;
