This book is a story of the creation of the Coonley House complex, its evolution over a century, and its recent restoration. Based on his comments in his Autobiography, this house is often regarded as Wright's finest Prairie house, and is considered to be one of the terminal masterpieces of his Prairie period. The book includes a description of the lives of Queene Ferry Coonley and Avery Coonley, and their client-architect relationship formed during and after the building of the Coonley House. A description is presented of Wright's design of the Coonley House complex, which evolved through a series of site plans and building alterations, and includes Wright's and Jensen's landscape plans. Descriptive exterior and interior tours of the complex in the Coonley era (1907-1917) with historic images and in the post-Coonley era (1920-2011) are a substantial part of the story. The soft-bound book has 242 pages and about 200 images with half in color. Author bio Dean Eastman is the current owner as well as the researcher, restoration architect, and project manager for the restorations of the Coonley House and Coach House (Stable). Dr. Eastman is currently a Professor of Physics (emeritus) at the University of Chicago. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) and an honorary member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
