The Hanna house is a milestone in Frank Lloyd Wright’s career and one of the acknowledged masterworks of 20th-century architecture. The Hannas tell how they came to commission Wright, how they received his ingenious yet provocative design—based on a hexagonal pattern like a bee’s honeycomb—and how it was built all within their means. In this reprint of the 1981 MIT edition they also tell what it meant to live and enjoy life in this unprecedented structure that was eventually given to Stanford University.
