Organic Architecture: The Other Modernism by Alan Hess

Organic Architecture: The Other Modernism illuminates the broad brush stroke of Organic residential architecture throughout the panorama of twentieth-century Modernism. A wide-ranging style that defies definition, Organic buildings are notable in their curves and colors, as well as their exuberant, opulent, and at times,extravagant complexity of line, form, texture, structure, and color.
