The Wright Space

Front Cover
Thunder Bay Press, 2001 - Architecture - 256 pages
This richly illustrated volume of designs by the visionary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) focuses on his unique ability to integrate structure and settings in ways that responded to the client's needs, the nature of the site, and the social changes that evolved over his seventy-year career. His respect for natural materials, and his willingness to experiment with machine-age technology, resulted in rare essays in wood, stone, brick, patterned and poured concrete, glass, and other elements combined in harmonious ways to express his elusive ideal: an organic architecture of free-flowing spaces dedicated to common and private use in ways that enhanced individual dignity and harmonious relationships.
