9780262081092: Frank Lloyd Wright's Hanna House: The Clients' Report (Architectural History Foundation/MIT Press series)

"You look so well in the bee cells that were made to imprison you in sunlight," Frank Lloyd Wright wrote to his clients, the Hannas in 1937. This large-format, generously illustrated book tells the story of Wright's famous hexagonal "Honeycomb House" in Palo Alto, California. In personal correspondence, drawings, photographs, and original documents, it brings to life the complex interaction between architect and client in building an entirely original and remarkable home.

Jean S. Hanna taught English for many years and coauthored and edited several widely used textbooks with her husband.

Review:



"A warm, human story and a modern house-buyer's escapist dream."
- Publishers Weekly
"... takes readers on ... a fascinating journey from the Hannas first thought of hiring Wright through planning, construction and living in their house to its present use as the Stanford University provost's residence."
- Los Angeles Times
"The merger of a young couple's impossible dream with the affectionate bickering back and forth between the genius and his clients has put a special quality on the Hanna report.... While there were 20 Wright private residences designed and built in California, almost three times that number were commissioned by Californians and never constructed."
- San Jose Mercury
