Frank Lloyd Wright is not only synonymous with architecture, his name is also synonymous with the American house in the twentieth century. In particular, his residential work has been the subject of continuing interest and controversy. Wright's Fallingwater (1935), the seminal masterpiece perched over a waterfall deep in the Pennsylvania highlands, is perhaps the best-known private house in the history of the world. In fact, Wright's houses-from his Prairie style Robie House (1906) in Chicago, to the Storer (1923) and Freeman (1923) houses in Los Angeles, and Taliesen West (1937) in the Arizona desert-are all touchstones of modern architecture. For the first time, all 289 extant houses are shown here in exquisite color photographs. Along with Weintraub's stunning photos and a selection of floor plans and archival images, the book includes text and essays by several leading Wright scholars. Frank Lloyd Wright: The Houses is an event of great importance and a major contribution to the literature on this titan of modern architecture.

Alan Weintraub is an architectural photographer whose recent work includes Bay Area Style. Alan Hess is an architectural writer and author of Rizzoli's The Architecture of John Lautner. Kenneth Frampton is Ware Professor of Architecture at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. Thomas S. Hines is Professor of History and Architecture at UCLA. Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer is Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Kathryn Smith is an architecture historian, preservation consultant, author and lecturer. Margo Stipe is Registrar of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Eric Lloyd Wright, great grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, is an architect based in California.

  • Frank Lloyd Wright The Houses

    Very good book with lots of good pictures. Missing some of the houses, but not sure any of the books could contain all of his works. If one truly enjoyed the works of Frank LLoyd Wright, this book would be worth the large purchase price. We have several of the books and have been to several of the houses. We have the books that are specifically for the houses we toured, but have several that contain a collection of houses. THis book is a good overview and would be a good book for someone to either start with, or if one just wanted a good general book on Frank LLoyd Wright
