Additions to buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright threaten their integrity, yet such changes are often necessary to support ongoing uses that keep those buildings alive. To my knowledge, there has never been a major publication addressing this issue, as it relates specifically to Wright, until this book.--David G. De Long, University of Pennsylvania, author of Auldbrass: Frank Lloyd Wright's Southern Plantation
This book is composed of a series of fascinating case studies related to the relationship of old and new design within the context of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. As time passes buildings inevitably face new challenges and expectations. How do we meet these needs, while respecting and preserving the essential character of place? Given their insight and scope, these essays should be of central interest, not just to students of Wright, but to anyone involved in the rehabilitation and expanded reuse of important historic structures.--Kenneth Breisch, University of Southern California
