Overview

Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the great masters in the history of modern architecture. His career spanned over sixty years, and his unique stylistic invention kept ahead of any passing fashion. This definitive monograph provides an unparalleled account of Wright's career. It explores the key themes in Wright's work, and presents the consistent qualities that underlie all of his designs. The themes of space and the spatial experience of the user are thus examined, together with a discussion of construction and Wright's search for what he termed the 'nature of materials'. The relationship between Wright's architecture and landscape is also investigated.

The book includes an extensive selection of archival drawings and photographs; clear, redrawn plans and detail drawings; beautiful colour photographs; and a complete list of Wright's buildings and projects compiled by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives.
