Frank Lloyd Wright: Writings and Buildings


From the publisher:

"A presentation through Wright's own words and works – this collection of writings surveys his many achievements as a major figure of twentieth-century architecture. Complemented by more than 150 illustrations and the first complete list of Wright's executed buildings from 1893-1959, keyed to a map of the United States.

'The greatest of all architects,' as he has been called buy one of his most distinguished colleagues, Frank Lloyd Wright has received recognition on a scale unparalleled in the history of architecture. Rebel and prophet, profound innovator, impatient with the sterile timidities and commercialization around him, he was yet an ardent conservtaor of traditional democracy, dedicated, in writing and building, to what he himself called 'the sovereignty of the individual.'"
