This new volume is the first major presentation in decades of the visionary drawings of the artist-architect and master designer. Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of vast and unprecedented vision, whose work is not only still admired by the critics and carefully studied by historians but is also widely beloved. Comfortable spaces, humanly scaled, with extraordinary attention to detail-as seen in a range of architectural forms—are at the center of Wright’s enduring appeal. This vision and attention is nowhere more evident than in the drawings. It has been said that had Wright left us only drawings, and not his buildings as well, he would still be celebrated for his brilliant artistry, and this is borne out here. Even more significant, and shown here as never before, are the magical first moments of invention and inspiration—Wright’s earliest sketches, some never before published-which offer unique insight into the mind of the master architect.
Frank Lloyd Wright Designs is the most important and comprehensive book to be published on the drawings, designs, conceptual sketches, elevations, and plans of Wright, with particular emphasis on the development of certain important projects. It includes the best-known and beloved projects-like Fallingwater, the Coonley House, Midway Gardens, the Guggenheim, the Imperial Hotel as well as a range of intriguing, unfamiliar, and previously unpublished drawings by Wright.
420 pages, 350 full-color illustrations throughout. 11'' x 11''. Hardcover; clothbound, with jacket.
