"Frank Folsom Smith's long and illustrious career as a leading modernist architect whose award-winning designs have brought him critical acclaim, is deftly interwoven with his rich and colorful life. A leading member of what has become known as the Sarasota School of Architecture, Smith's TEST OF TIME, is a must-read not only for architects and historians, but also laymen interested in how the architectural "system" works. He thoroughly explains the process of how major and minor housing developments, buildings, and renovations transfer from the drawing table to completion. His richly illustrated book showcases the designs which made him one of the top architects in the Country, and I highly recommend it.
