Minoru Yamasaki described the feeling he sought to create in his buildings as "serenity, surprise, and delight." Here, his granddaughter Katie Yamasaki charts his life and work: his childhood in Seattle's Japanese immigrant community, paying his way through college working in Alaska's notorious salmon canneries, his success in architectural school, and the transformative structures he imagined and built. A Japanese American man who faced brutal anti-Asian racism in post-World War II America and an outsider to the architectural establishment, he nonetheless left his mark on the world, from the American Midwest to New York City, Asia, and the Middle East. This striking biography renders one artist's work through the eyes of another, telling the story of a man whose vision, hard work, and humanity led him to the pinnacle of his field.
