Editorial Reviews


"A meticulously researched and beautifully presented book with a large portfolio of plates... Kruty's own achievement is that by capitalizing on the loss of Midway Gardens and broadening the scope of his reconstruction, so that Chicago and its relation to America's cultural history and European Modernism become almost as important as the architect's genius as explanatory factors, he has put Wright's 'fantasy' back on the map." -- Douglas Tallack, Urban History

Format: Hardcover
Kruty has fashioned a craftsmanlike, wonderfully readable account of Midway Gardens. A fascinating study, for design professional and lay person alike, which illuminates not only a lost masterpiece, but the mind and design process of its creator, Frank Lloyd Wright, against the social backdrop of pre-World War I Chicago.
