Ambassador Richard Swett?s groundbreaking new book investigates the unique civic leadership strengths of the architecture profession. Drawing upon the compelling history of the profession, both past and present, as well as from his own singular experience as the only architect to serve in Congress during the 20th century, Swett has produced an insightful volume that is both inspiring and instructive. He shares Mark Twain?s viewthat ?if the only tool you have is a hammer, after a while every problem begins to look like a nail.? Leadership by Design is an eloquent plea to architects, leaders and citizens alike to expand the tool chest as we seeknew leadership to design new solutions for the complex challenges facing our nation and the world.355 Ibid. 356 Ibid. 357 aquot;The Custom House Architect, aquot; New York Times, October 24, 1899, 1. 358 Cass Gilbert to Julia Gilbert, October 24, 1899, Gilbert Papers. 359 aquot;The Custom House Plans, aquot; New York Times, October 25, 1899, 7. 360 Ibid.
