Alexander Smith Cochran

Modernist Architect in Traditional Baltimore

Alexander Cochran of Baltimore (1913–1990) was described as an "architectural missionary." Besides being devoted to modernism, Cochran was a highly romantic, deeply religious humanist who desired to keep the best of the past while adapting to modern needs. He transformed his city, pointing the way to its later renaissance in the 1960s. The book opens with a short biography of Cochran—peopled with the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, George Howe, Richard Neutra, and Eero Saarinen. The second half is a portfolio of Cochran’s work.
