"A Frank Lloyd Wright Companion" brings together in one volume the essential detail, descriptions, brief histories, photographs, and plans of everything built by America's best-known architect. For the first time, Wilham Allin Storrer presents complete plans of all of Wright's work, as built, along with critical information and rare anecdotal material collected over many years of research. Surveying almost 450 buildings, each of which he visited at least twice, Storrer includes the full range of Wright's architecture - from vacation cottages in Montana and Michigan to such monuments of modernism as the Johnson's Wax Building and the Guggenheim Museum. He also includes buildings completed after Wright's death in 1959. Organized to follow Wright's career from his first design, the interior of the Helena Valley Chapel near Taliesin, to his last built work, the Lykes residence in Phoenix, the entries feature: a text that summarizes what is important about the history of each building, its commission, design, use, and client, and its place in Wright's work, and its stylistic and engineering innovations; 1000 photographs of interiors and exteriors, most taken by the author, including elevations and historical images of buildings that are no longer standing; and floor plans of Wright's built work showing changes in his preliminary plans, and each meticulously redrawn by the author. As a comprehensive single-volume reference, the Companion should be a centerpiece of any Wright collection and any serious library of art and architecture.
