Over the past three decades, Paul Goldberger has been one of the most high-profile architectural critics in the United States. A Pulitzer Prize winner for architectural journalism, he is a former writer for The New Yorker and former Architectural Critic for The New York Times. He is currently a Contributing Editor for Vanity Fair. His career as the eminent architectural critic in the United States started in 1979, when he began writing for the Times, and he was appointed the paper’s lead critic only three years later, replacing the indomitable Ada Louise Huxtable.1 He is the author of several books and innumerable academic and journal articles, and has been a keynote presenter at events across the globe.2 His knowledge of architecture is immense, his prose concise, and his interest in the place architecture has in broader culture – one of the characteristics of his writing for which is rightly praised – is evident.
