Clay Risen

Clay Risen is an editor at The New York Times op-ed section and the author, most recently, of The Bill of the Century: The Epic Battle for the Civil Rights Act (Bloomsbury Press, 2014). Along with regular articles for the Times, his freelance work has appeared in publications like Smithsonian, Metropolis, Fortune, and The Atlantic. Risen returns to the architect fold after a brief hiatus, during which he wrote American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye: A Guide to the Nation’s Favorite Spirit (Sterling Epicure, 2013). In the past, he has covered the legacies of critics Ada Louise Huxtable and Herbert Muschamp for architect, as well as written criticism of his own about an interpretive center addition to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., social housing built in interwar Germany, and how to fix the Pritzker Prize on the eve of that award’s 30th anniversary.
