Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A thorough and sympathetic review of the genesis and design of one of the great buildings of 20th-century architecture. Herbert Johnson, the client, and Wright, the architect, together created a group of buildings that are still extraordinary 50 years after they were begun in Racine, Wisconsin. Lipman, an architect himself, draws on much unpublished archival material to expose the workings of the design process in detail. He writes well, and the book is well-composed and designed, with excellent illustrations and specially drawn plans. For all architectural history and architecture collections. Jack Perry Brown, Ry er son & Burnham Libs., Art Inst . of Chicago
