Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the great masters of modern architecture. His career spanned over 60 years, and his unique stylistic invention kept ahead of any ephemeral fashion. This definitive monograph provides an unparalleled account of Wright's momentous career. It explores the key themes in Wright's work, and presents the consistent qualities that underlie all of his designs.

The themes of space and spatial experience are examined, together with a discussion of construction and Wright's search for what he termed the nature of materials. The relationship between his architecture and the landscape is also explored with rigour.

This book includes an extensive selection of archival drawings and photographs; clear, redrawn plans and detail drawings; and beautiful specially-commissioned, colour photographs. It also features a complete list of Wright's buildings and projects compiled by the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"One of the handsomest books yet on America's architect of the century."-The Sunday Times

"Robert McCarter's volume is a masterly achievement."-Times Literary Supplement

"As a presentation of Wright's complete career, it is difficult to imagine McCarter's book being bettered."-Architects Journal

"Of all the books that have appeared in the last 10 years on Frank Lloyd Wright and his architecture, this is one that will last. Robert McCarter's prose is agile and passionate."-amazon.com

"A sumptuous and revealing book... An intensely human and at times poetically interpreted description of Wright's work and life."-(World Architecture
