Phyllis Lambert, Chair of the AEF board, recently published her book Building Seagram, which is a personal and deeply researched cultural history of architecture, art, urban regulations and real estate, as well as conservation and stewardship in New York City. Lambert was 27 when she took over the search for an architect and chose Mies van der Rohe. Through her choice, she established her role as a leading architectural patron and singlehandedly changed the face of American urban architecture.
