Maya Lin: Thinking with Her Hands

Maya Lin, a shy young person, member of a Chinese-American family, an architect and an environmental artist, has been well known since she was an undergraduate architecture student at Yale, when she won the competition to design the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. This book, filled with dramatic photos of Lin and her many projects (including the ark-shaped chapel at the Children's Defense Fund and the Civil Rights Memorial for the Southern Poverty Law Center), is an attractive, thoroughly researched biography that will inspire young readers to develop their own talents. An author of many art books, Susan Goldman Rubin is especially skilled at writing about the architect's thought processes and methods of working with diverse materials. --Melinda Greenblatt, freelance book reviewer
