Bruce Goff is one of the most provocative architects of the twentieth century - yet his work is not sufficiently known. An early advocate of Frank Lloyd Wright's ideas on architecture, Goff quickly developed a more pluralistic approach in which each building was regarded as unique. Building his reputation on a series of unconventional house designs, Goff came to express an extraordinary range of interests. His scope is shown by a comparison of the stunning crystalline roof of the Religious Center at the University of Oklahoma and the economic use of standard I-beams in the famous "dream house" at Aurora. Goff's theatrical contribution to architecture through his use of color is evidenced by his own paintings and his decorative, architectural ornamentation. By synthesizing his personal development and architectural achievements, this book makes an important contribution to the appraisal of Goff's work.
