Frank Lloyd Wright in Word and Form
Frank Lloyd Wright: In Word and Form is the first book to consider Frank Lloyd Wright's extraordinary architectural vision in light of his extensive writings. This compelling illustrated study traces the dynamic interaction between building and writing that made Wright one of the most famous architects in the world. Beginning with Wright's apprenticeship under master architect Louis Sullivan, this book analyzes all the major buildings and writings in all periods of Frank Lloyd Wright's seventy-year career, including the "Prairie House" period, the influential years in Japan, the highly productive post-war period, and the final years of "organicism." Throughout the narrative, major biographical features of Wright's life are included, allowing readers to understand the meteoric rise, catastrophic fall, and hard-earned resurrection of Wright's artistic career.
