Review:

"This book contains a collection of important essays on and by Frank Lloyd Wright, providing both an illuminating study of on of the key figures of the 20th century as well as an overview of the very principles that are the foundation of great architecture."-Frank Lloyd Wright Quarterly "The most beautiful writing in the book is by Frank Lloyd Wright himself... Even in literary rather than architectural terms, his prose assures him a place in the American canon... Richard MacCormac's essay... is absolutely indispensable to understanding Wright's work... A beautifully produced and comprehensively illustrated tome."-Building Design "In the multitude of books published on Frank Lloyd Wright over the last decade or so, two stand out: Neil Levine's The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and Robert McCarter's Frank Lloyd Wright. Now comes a third and, keeping it in the family, it's edited by McCarter and includes essays by him and Levine... given that much of the material has long been available, why is this book so good? Simply because it provides a sustained focus on the 'ordering principles' that inform Wright's architecture, and, in getting to the heart of his design process, it becomes surprisingly relevant today... This book may be architectural history but it couldn't be more pertinent."-Architect's Journal "Devotees of the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright will love this newly illustrated collection of esays... Over 400 illustrations including sketches, plans and photographs... Provide a close look at Wright's creative process. McCarter seems to have left no character in the architect's history unturned... Even if you think you've read it all before, McCarter and his contributors offer an original look at the Wright stuff."-Array Magazine
