Architects’ Gravesites: A Serendipitous Guide is an architectural guide by Henry H. Kuehn, edited by the MIT Press, that leads the reader to the “final space” that architects will occupy themselves. In facts, all working architects leave behind a string of monuments to themselves in the form of buildings they have designed. Kuehn answers the question “Are architects’ gravesites more monumental, more architectural, than others?”. From Alvar Aalto to Frank Lloyd Wright, from Louise Bethune – the first American woman to become a professional architect – to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the book provides an illustrated guide to more than 200 gravesites of famous architects buried in the USA.
