This book is the first serious study of the Usonian home, a concept which stands in Frank Lloyd Wright's works where l'unité d'habitation stands in the works of Le Corbusier. John Sergeant clearly sets out the sources of Wright's urban concepts that are deeply embedded in the American tradition, while at the same time he shows how Wright practiced what he preached. Sergeant has carefully demonstrated the organic nature of this great designer's life and works as made manifest in a brilliant galaxy of small and beautiful homes. The book is extensively illustrated with both photographs and drawings.

Book Description Whitney Library of Design / Watson-Guptill Publications, New York, NY, 1976. Hardcover. First printing. Off-white cloth, black and illus. dust jacket, 207 pp., 200 BW illus. "Frank Lloyd Wright's contribution to architecture is undisputed. And today Wright's later work -- his Usonian houses, his Taliesin working communities, and his plan for Broadacre City -- has a new relevance as energy conservation and ecological integrity have become the dominant concens of the environmental design professions and the modern movement in architecture is undergoing serious appraisal. In this well-illustrated and thoroughly documented book, the late period of Wright's prolific career is reassessed and his philosophy of building with nature rather than against it is analyzed." (dj). VG- (Ex-art library, with plastic label remnant on outer lower spine; i.d. marks on book block edges and outermost pages, incl. rear pocket; dj has light edge wear esp. at head and heel of spine; book block edges have some soiling; page surfaces are quite nice and crisp and clean.).
