Powerhouse: Judith Chafee

"Powerhouse" is the first book on the singular life and career of American architect Judith Chafee (1932-1998). Chafee was an unrepentant modernist on the forefront of sustainable design.

Chafee was also a social justice advocate and a highly respected woman in a male-dominated profession.
