Frank Lloyd Wright: master builder
Universe Publishing in association with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Oct 15, 1997 - Art - 240 pages
This remarkable book presents twenty-five of the most renowned and significant buildings of America's premier architect, from his early Prairie work at Oak Park, Illinois, in the 1890s to his daring creations of the 1940s and 1950s.
Published in association with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, this superbly illustrated volume features unpublished photographs for which renowned architectural photographers Michael Freeman and Paul Rocheleau gained unprecedented access to some of Wright's masterworks. The book examines in unsurpassed detail a selection of Wright's architecture that covers the phenomenal range of his work, including such internationally famous buildings as the Home and Studio in Oak Park, Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, as well as several lesser-known residences such as the Auldbrass Plantation in South Carolina and the Kenneth Laurent house in Rockford, Illinois.
The works featured here are succinctly documented by one of Wright's former apprentices, with text that details the development and execution of each commission. Also included throughout is a selection of Wright's extensive writings, unpublished talks, and private letters.
Frank Lloyd Wright: Master Builder takes the reader on a rich journey into Wright's world and fully demonstrates how Frank Lloyd Wright's vision completely changed the course of American architecture.
