Frank Lloyd Wright Monograph

Frank Lloyd Wright’s work is instantly recognisable, not least because of the organic relationship each of his buildings has to its environment. Few architects share the same household recognition as Wright – justly deserved since the guy kinda announced modernism into the structure of the home. TASCHEN’s three-volume monograph is based on unlimited access to the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, and takes a complete look at Wright’s projects, from his early Prairie Houses, through the Usonian concept home, epitomized by Fallingwater, the Tokyo years, his progressive living architecture buildings, right through to later schemes like NY’s Guggenheim Museum. It’s a nice touch that author Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer served as Wright’s apprentice during the 1950s, which means he’s well-placed to share his own insights on these game-changing buildings.
