Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) revolutionized American architecture through his innovative treatment of space, light, and materials. America’s best-known architect of the 20th century, Wright-designed buildings and structures continue to thrill and inspire.
Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the architect’s birth, the revised fourth edition of Wright Sites: A Guide to Frank Lloyd Wright Public Places is the only comprehensive guide to all Wright-designed structures currently open to the public in the United States and Japan. This edition includes sites newly opened to the public, updated descriptions and access information, and, for the first time, color photographs of each site.
During his seven-decade career, Wright designed more than 1,000 structures. Of those, approximately 500 were built and some 400 survive. Wright Sites describes the design ideas and history behind each of the 74 works accessible to the public. Although much of Wright’s work in the United States is concentrated in the Midwest, examples can be found in 22 states across the country, including multiple sites in Arizona, California, Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania. Three of his designs in Japan are also featured.
Complete with an archives directory, bibliography, and suggested itineraries for Wright road trips, Wright Sites is a fitting sesquicentennial tribute and inspirational guide to the work of an American original.
