"[Maya Lin: Topologies] presents 50 projects from the last three decades that demonstrate the scope of Lin’s creative process, featuring her own sketches and drawings and linked by her ideal of making a place for individuals within the landscape. With her environmental works like Storm King Wavefield, Eleven-Minute Line (Sweden), and Pin River–Yangtze (Beijing), Lin maintains a balance between art and architecture, drawing inspiration from culturally diverse sources and has been proposing new ways of thinking and imagining that resist categories, genres, and borders."
-HAMPTONS ART HUB
"Having achieved success as an artist, whose best work abstracts forms drawn from nature, and as the designer of buildings with sculptural aspirations (as well as the creator of several more memorials), [Maya Lin] is beginning to embrace the connections among her diverse bodies of work. . . One of the best reasons to buy Topologies is to see Lin’s architecture, including several private homes that can be visited only in photos and two somewhat more public buildings for a Children’s Defense Fund camp in a remote part of Tennessee."
"[May Lin] is both proof of Lin's massive influence and a celebration of her environmentally minded, deeply impactful projects. . . Lin's work subtly connects to landscape, language, history, and memory - all with respect to the natural world."
"This stunning Rizzoli-published book (the layered cover simulates mist over her 'Wave Field') is worthy of the range of this mesmerizing interdisciplinary artist."

"In this first comprehensive monograph on American architect and artist Maya Lin, the astounding scope of her last three decades is considered through photographs, sketches, a foreword by John McPhee, and compelling essays from Paul Goldberger, Dava Sobel, and Lin herself, among others. While the 50 projects featured in Maya Lin: Topologies range from sculptural earth forms to memorials, institutional structures, and residences, Lin’s wonder at and respect for the natural world shine through in each."
"This luxurious volume, the first retrospective of Lin's 30-year-long career as an artist and dedicated conservationist, is a keepsake compendium of her art, architecture, and memorials, beginning with her much-celebrated Vietnam veterans' memorial (1982) and concluding with her ongoing and—according to Lin, last—memorial chronicling the disappearing species and habitats on earth. . .[Maya Lin: Topologies] is a comprehensive volume showcasing an extraordinary artist who transcends language, time, history, and categorization."
