Witold Rybczynski (born 1943) is a Canadian American architect, professor and writer. He is currently the Martin and Margy Meyerson Professor Emeritus of Urbanism at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Most Beautiful House in the World is the story of this great architect's design, the "happy accidents," and construction of his own house. As he progresses, Rybezynski discusses feng shui, the Chinese art of placing a home in the landscape, and also considers the work of such architects as Palladio, Le Corbusier, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
