A design competition for a new utopian community elicits competing visions for the future of human settlements, but none is more controversial than the submission by Charlie Cadwell's mysteriously lost architect-father. This surprise not only entangles Charlie with the most erotically beautiful girl he's ever met, but also the inevitable forces of greed and corruption that undermine the human prospect-a series of challenges that ultimately lead him to realize his deepest desires.
Since Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, the philosophical intrigue and romance of architecture has been sparsely represented in literary fiction. Architect J.D. ALT has now brought it, once more, onto the imaginary stage of human endeavor.
