Frank Lloyd Wright was the first great American architect. His buildings are ruggedly individualistic, often single-family homes, and even when he devised utopian schemes for larger numbers of people he still envisaged homes on large plots of land. In the course of his career he designed about a thousand structures. His designs included skyscrapers, gas stations, churches, as well as hundreds of individual houses. This volume balances a biography with an analysis of Wright's influence as an architect and designer.
This handy series from Headway offers brief yet lucid introductions to the world’s cultural icons. Each book examines the life, the work, and the legends surrounding its subject, and key terms and concepts are highlighted and clearly explained. Additionally, each chapter ends with a review section for easy reference and to help consolidate the reader’s understanding of the text.
