Part of a series that aims to place buildings within their historical context, this text considers Wright's Unity Temple, Barnsdall House and Johnson Wax Administration Building. It includes specially produced technical drawings that explain how the buildings were detailed and put together. The text explains how together, the three buildings provide an insight into Wright's approach to design throughout his career, and into his aptitude for designing in three entirely different fields of architecture: office, residential and church design.

Of all the books that have appeared in the last 10 years on Frank Lloyd Wright and his architecture, this is the one that will last. It is in all ways comprehensive: its text is as organized and complete as a set of blueprints; its striking pictures of projects as small as the modest Usonian houses or as grand as the Guggenheim Museum are arranged in order by the visual information they reveal about each project; and even its copyediting is noticeably coherent, with dates just where one expects such details to be, in the first picture captions for each project. The book as a whole is so carefully conceived that, reading it, one knows exactly where to look for any particular bit of history. And while, for casual readers, the essays may offer too much to digest at first, Robert McCarter's prose is agile and passionate. "Wright understood buildings to be the background or framework for human existence," he writes. "Architecture gave dignity to daily life." --Margaret MoormanAbout the Author:
