Overview


Fifty years after Frank Lloyd Wright’s death, he is widely hailed as a genius who has exerted more influence on design than any other twentieth century architect. His lifelong quest to “break out of the box” and create organic architecture—relevant to its place and time, alive with natural light, and integrated with its setting—inspired him to realize innovations that were far ahead of his time. The Wright Experience springs from this great designer’s passion for beauty, truth, harmony, creative adventures, and the “mother art” itself.
  • A new retrospective of Wright’s career.
  • Stunning images by specialists in architectural photography.
  • Frank Lloyd Wright’s own artwork.
  • An illustrated timeline covering all of Wright’s built work—more than 500 structures—and biographical details.
  • Annotated floor plans demonstrating how Wright used space in new ways.
  • A beautifully designed volume embodying Wright’s dictum that “form and function are one.”

    love this book

    The book is huge!! Larger than average... making the pictures larger than average as well. Because of their size, you can see an extraordinary amount of detail in the photos of the spectacular interior spaces Wright created.

    This is a MUST Book for anyone interested in Architecture.

    I am very glad to have this book in my Collection and Library of Frank Lloyd Wright. <BR/><BR/>Retired from Springfield, Illinois, where Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built the Dana Thomas House, which is a definite must to see. The Book brings back many memories of tours that I gave to friends and family, when visiting.

    An ideal book to introduce the great master

    'This is an ideal book to introduce the work of one of the 20th century¿s great masters to a new generation and rekindle the amazement of long-standing Frank Lloyd Wright admirers. The Wright Experience is ... richly illustrated in colour with the photographs of Balthazar Korab, on pages large enough for the reader to enter the world of this master architect. It features a timeline to prepare the reader for a sweep through the major works, from the early days in Oak Park, to the final works. Edited by Sara Hunt with an introduction by Margo Stipe of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, we get a clear and comprehensive view of the progression of works, supported by redrawn plans of many of the buildings that usefully key to the photographs and, for good measure, reproductions of some of the master¿s great drawings.¿ Prof David Porter, Head of the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art

    Stunningly illustrated, utterly absorbing

    "THERE is more beauty in a fine ground plan than in almost any of its ultimate consequences." Frank Lloyd Wright believed in following through from first principles, and we're only now, perhaps, realising how far he was ahead of his time; just starting to apprehend his ideas of the "organic" and of "integrity" in architecture. Wright would have appreciated the flair with which the landmarks of his career are presented here, and still more the seriousness with which they are considered. A stunningly illustrated, utterly absorbing book about a fascinating figure who transcends his age and the field of architecture.<BR/>¿`Books in Brief¿: The Scotsman, 1 November 2008
