After Frank Lloyd Wright's death in 1959, some of those who had studied and worked with the visionary American architect stayed on at Taliesin and formed Taliesin Architects. The group's aim is to create buildings in harmony with nature; to embrace lifelong learning; to make a positive contribution to the way people live; and to keep Wright's vision alive while experimenting within its parameters.

Author John Rattenbury, head of the talented firm, studied with Wright and has been with Taliesin ever since. A Living Architecture offers a fascinating overview of the renowned Taliesin Architects' work of the past forty years, a history of the fellowship's development, and a succinct summary of Wright's design philosophy. With three hundred full-color photographs and drawings, it is a spectacular visual treat, documenting some of the world's most exciting buildings of the late twentieth century.
