9781568982755: Wright Sites: Updated and Revised, 3rd Edition

As America's most beloved architect, Frank Lloyd Wright's work, life, and legacy, have been the subject of countless exhibitions and publications. Through his poetic treatment of space, plan, light, and materials, Wright revolutionized American architecture. His buildings broke free of the Arts and Crafts movement, establishing him as one of the preeminent modernists of the twentieth century, and continue to thrill a wide-ranging audience of architects and nonarchitects alike. Wright Sites-one of our best-selling titles-is a complete catalog of all of Wright's extant, visitable buildings in the United States. In addition to regional maps and suggested weekend- and day-trip itineraries, this handy-to-use guide contains descriptions and visitation information for more than 60 projects. This new updated and revised edition introduces seven sites that have been made available to the public for the first time.

Review:

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), his architectural legacy has been the subject of untold numbers of exhibitions and publications. In 1994, the Museum of Modern Art in New York celebrated Wright's accomplishments in an exhaustive and wildly popular retrospective of his career. Through his poetic treatment of space, light and materials, Wright revolutionized American architecture, establishing himself as one of the preeminent modernists of the early 20th century. His buildings continue to thrill a wide-ranging audience of architects and non-architects alike. Wright Sites: A Guide To Frank Lloyd Wright Public Places is a revised edition of a guidebook first publishing by The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, and is a complete catalog of Wright's extant, visitable buildings in the United States, and also includes listings for sites in Asia and Europe. In addition to regional maps and suggested itineraries, the guide contains descriptions of visitation information for more than sixty projects. Although much of Wright's work is located in the Midwest, Wright enthusiasts across the country will be delighted to discover Wright buildings in New Hampshire, Texas, Alabama, Virginia, Florida, and Montana. -- Midwest Book Review
