Modern Capital Contest: Name the 12 Architects Who Have Appeared on the Cover of Time (Won by Karl in Silver Spring)
Charles Goodman is pictured at bottom right.
Congrats to Karl in Silver Spring for being the first to answer the question posed below correctly. These are the names I was looking for:
Frank Lloyd Wright
R. Buckminster Fuller
William L. Pereira
William A. Delano
Wallace K. Harrison
Richard J. Neutra
Ralph A. Cram
Karl made two good points: Charles Luckman could also be included in this list, although he appeared on the cover for his business career as president of Lever Brothers, not for his later work as an architect. Karl also mentioned Thomas Jefferson as a “bonus.” Thanks to all who played.
In my previous post
, I mentioned the March 31, 1958, Time
cover featuring Edward Durrell Stone. The first person who e-mails
me with the names of the 12 architects who have appeared on the cover of Time
will win a copy of the 1964 book, The People’s Architects
. Published by Rice University, the book features an essay, “Architecture and Society,” by Charles Goodman, who, no, is not one of the architects to appear on the cover of Time
Please include your full name and address so I can mail the book. Good luck.
