Over the past decade, there has been a significant revival of interest in the architecture and designs of Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). From Barnsdall Park in Los Angeles to the Zimmerman house in New Hampshire, from Florida Southern College to Taliesin in Wisconsin, with Fallingwater in between, Frank Lloyd Wright buildings open to the public receive thousands of visitors each year, and there is a thriving commerce in reproductions of Wright's furniture and fabric designs. Among the many books available on Frank Lloyd Wright, William Allin Storrer's classic—now fully revised and updated—remains the only authoritative guide to all of Wright's built work.
This edition includes a number of new features. It provides information on Frank Lloyd Wright buildings discovered since the first edition. It features full-color photographs to highlight those buildings that remain essentially as they were first built. To facilitate its use as a convenient field guide, this durable flexibound edition gives full addresses with each entry, as well as GPS coordinates, and offers maps giving the shortest route to each building. Preserving the chronological order of past editions, the catalog allows readers to trace the progression of Frank Lloyd Wright's built designs from the early Prairie school works to the last building constructed to Wright's specifications on the original site—the Aime and Norman Lykes residence.
The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright will be indispensable for anyone fascinated with Wright's unique architectural genius.

William Allin Storrer holds a Ph.D. in comparative arts. He is the author of The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion, also published by the University of Chicago Press.Review:
"Storrer, who has written on Wright for a quarter century, has produced the first true and complete catalogue raisonne of Wright's work, and it is stunning.... He has taken the vast forest of Wright's built work and looked at it tree by tree, labeling each and every one of those trees thoroughly and intriguingly. It is a testament to Mr. Storrer's skill that this book comes off not merely as a catalogue, but as an inspiring study of the whole Wright forest." - Paul Goldberger, New York Times
