Ayn Rand
and was her first major literary success. The novel's protagonist, Howard Roark, is an individualistic young architect who refuses to compromise his artistic and personal vision for worldly recognition and success.

These include Roark's former classmate, Peter Keating, who succeeds by following popular styles, but turns to Roark for help with design problems.
