Synopsis: Prairie Skyscraper traces the history and evolution of Wright's recently restored nineteen-story-skyscraper masterwork, which takes its place beside the S.C. Johnson Wax Research Tower as one of Wright's only two vertical structures-and, at 221 feet tall-his largest. Built as a multi-use skyscraper in 1956, the building is now a luxury hotel and arts center, featuring collections of the works of Bruce Goff and Frank Lloyd Wright, and soon a new museum facility designed by Zaha Hadid. Now, with all-new color photography, we are given access to this extraordinary architectural gem and the Wright-designed furnishings custom made for it.

About the Author: Anthony Alofsin is Professor of Architecture at University of Texas. Richard P. Townsend is Executive Director of the Price Tower Arts Center. Hilary Ballon is Professor in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University. Joseph M. Siry is Professor of Art History at Wesleyan University. Steven Brooke is a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and winner of the AIA National Institute Honor Award for photography.
