Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man Who Played With Blocks A Short Illustrated Biography
Description
To Frank Lloyd Wright, everything was architecture: the outside of a building, how you feel inside it, and things you may or may not see, from the furniture to the furnace. To Wright even the car you parked next to the building was architecture. (Throughout his life, he bought more than 80 cars, and often modified them to his own designs.) Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man Who Played With Blocks, A Short Illustrated Biography is a sometimes humorous but always thought-provoking book. Freudenheim and Abate expand the reader's knowledge and understanding of Wright's design and engineering concepts, architecture, and personality. Illustrated with 110 gorgeous photographs (87 color, 23 black & white, and 5 double page color spreads), the book explores houses such as Fallingwater, the Johnson Buildings, his revolutionary plans for a Mile High Skyscraper, the Guggenheim Museum (an upside down ziggurat) and his solar hemicycle house warmed by the sun, among others. Readers learn how Wright convinced potential clients his buildings would be revolutionary- and why they often were. 148 pages.
