Mark Lamster is the architecture critic of the Dallas Morning News and a professor at the University of Texas at Arlington School of Architecture. A contributing editor to Architectural Review and Design Observer, his work has appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and many national magazines. He is currently at work on a definitive new biography of the late architect Philip Johnson, to be published by Little Brown.
For more than a decade, Lamster served as an editor at Princeton Architectural Press, in New York. Prior to that, he was an editor at George Braziller, the distinguished publisher of illustrated books.
He is the author of numerous books, including Master of Shadows (2009), a political biography of the painter Peter Paul Rubens, and Spalding’s World Tour (2006), the story of a group of all-star baseball players who circled the globe in the 19th century. His papers related to that project were acquired by the National Baseball Hall of Fame, in Cooperstown, and are available to the public.
