Genre: Non Fiction, Biography
I received an advanced reading copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
Easy to digest and visually appealing, this biography on the well known, but reserved Maya Lin will cater to both children and adults.
Maya Lin: Thinking With Her Hands is thoroughly researched, with quotes from Lin herself, photos, and design sketches.
One thing I particularly liked was how each chapter was related to a certain medium in design and architecture and work of Lin’s.
This biography also touches upon various issues of American history and Lin’s own emphasis on environmentalism and our relationship with the world around us. The biography itself touches upon civic activism, American history, and the hurdles Maya Lin has faced.
Well researched and filled with photographs, Maya Lin: Thinking With Her Hands will be a great addition to a classroom and school library and be a welcome sight for budding designers, architects, and builders.
