Many of Frank Lloyd Wright's most remarkable designs were never built. This lavish book presents 106 superb renderings of projects that never saw completion -- and explains why, in concise, insightful essays by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, director of archives at The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Pfeiffer draws on his long association with Wright to describe the circumstances surrounding the germination of each project and characterize the fascinating, often quirky personalities involved.

In his careful selection of projects, Pfeiffer has created a visual history of Wright's accomplishments over a career that stretched from 1895 to 1959. This collection of drawings is both a visual feast and a fascinating overview of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural genius.
