Curve & Flow: The Elegant Vision of L.A. Architect Paul R. Williams - Hardcover Book
Discover the remarkable story of an orphaned Black boy who grew up to become the groundbreaking architect to the stars, Paul R. Williams. A stunning nonfiction picture-book biography from the Caldecott Honor-winning author and NAACP Image Award-nominated artist.
As an orphaned Black boy growing up in America in the early 1900s, Paul R. Williams became obsessed with the concept of "home." He not only dreamed of building his own home, he turned his dreams into drawings. Defying the odds and breaking down the wall of racism, Williams was able to curve around the obstacles in his way to become a world-renowned architect. He designed homes for the biggest celebrities of the day, such as Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball, and created many buildings in Los Angeles that are now considered landmarks.
