Summary

Providing a comprehensive view of Wright's works, Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture and Life demonstrates the grand cannon of the master's work with over 200 of the most important projects he gave the world. With an in depth illustrative focus, drawing on color drawings, photos and blueprints, it is also an accessible view of Wright's career. While tracking these projects through a chronological filter, Architecture and Life provides an even greater focus on the 9 most important of Wright's buildings to the story of his life and career. Those landmark buildings include the Johnson Wax Building from Racine, Wisconsin, built during 1936 to 1939; Taliesin, Wright's famous home and studio, built in 1911, and, of course, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum itself, in New York City. The title features essays from experts such as Richard Cleary, Neal Levine, Mina Marefat, Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Margo Stipe, and Joseph Siry to support what is an incredible collection of images. This combination of analysis and photography, including glimpses into the construction of the buildings allowing the reader to truly understand the works that defined Wright's career and life.
