Frank Lloyd Wright: An American Architecture


Member Price

Frank Lloyd Wright: An American Architecture is a celebrated, highly readable volume, first published in 1955 and reprinted in 2006. Wright elucidated his guiding principles in an evocative joining of text and image. As revolutionary as the structures themselves are the theories that governed Frank Lloyd Wright's approach to architecture. 

Drawing on his formal and informal writings, lectures, and talks, each of nine sections concentrates on a major aspect of Wright's work and includes chapters grouped under such provocative headings as "Architecture Presents Man"; "Obstacles and Protests"; and "Out of the Ground into the Light." There is also a wide selection of case studies, in which Wright discusses some of his most important works to further illustrate the principles underlying organic architecture.

Complementing the text are more than 250 architectural plans, drawings, and photographs, as well as thirty-two pages of color renderings from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona.

An enduring tribute, this book offers fresh insight into the methods and thoughs of a master builder without equal.

By Frank Lloyd Wright, edited by Edgar Kaufmann.
