Overview

Californian Textile Block (Frank Lloyd Wright at a Glance Series) by Abby Moor

From 1917 to 1924 Frank Lloyd Wright created a small number of buildings in California that remain classics of American architecture. Using a groundbreaking process, they were constructed with precast concrete blocks, molded with decoration, and inset with glass so light filtered through in interesting patterns. Visit some of Wright's most distinctive textile block structures, including the famous Hollyhock House; the Ennis, Millard, Freeman, and Storer homes; the controversial Arizona Biltmore Hotel, and others. Rich illustrations and an insightful text showcase an American original at his creative best.
