Review

This new monograph examines the architect's fourth and most prolific chapter in his career - his contribution to mid-century design. At a time when the world thought Wright was a figure from the past, he produced imaginative designs to critical acclaim such as Fallingwater, Price Tower, and the Guggenheim. The book includes previously unpublished color photographs and detailed plans. Photography by Alan Weintraub, text by Alan Hess. (Rizzoli) -- New York Living Sept. 2007

Format: Hardcover
I approached this book with some trepidation, as I suspected there would be much duplication of the material presented in "Frank Lloyd Wright: The Houses". As approximately 60% of the houses presented here were given to us in the earlier title, these suspicions proved to be correct, yet I am giving this book 4 stars. Why?

This time, unlike what was done in "FLW: Prairie Houses", there has been some effort made to present different views of the repeated houses. However, be advised that there is reuse of the identical photos in many cases. What redeems this book are the seldom published houses that are presented. To those very familiar with Wright the names Buehler, Hughes, Neils, Pearce, Brown, Berger, et al will ring a bell, but may not bring a clear image to mind. Now the images are provided and great images they are. Often full page views of this wonderful architecture.These photos will draw you into serene spaces that are at one with nature. Almost 50 years after his death the artistry of this man still amazes. So, pick up a copy, settle into a comfy chair and prepare to be amazed.

The description:

"With lavish, new, previously unpublished color photographs and detailed plans"

is not quite accurate. And while there are some new photographs, there are no detailed plans of any kind. And most of the photographs are really no different in content than can be found in some other books. In additon, there is practically no technical information in any of the photo captions.

It would been nice to have other houses covered in this book that have not appeared in countless other books. Many of the subjects here have been beat to death.

My wife and I have made a hobby of studying Frank Lloyd Wright's residential architecture. We've visited Wright designed homes throughout the country and hope to build a Wright inspired Usonian-type retirement home. We have collected 20+ books depicting Wright's work to better inform ourselves and a yet to be selected architect and contractor of the proportions and details required to create "the look" we want to achieve. This book, used in conjunction with The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion, Revised Edition, have proven to be the most useful volumes in our collection.
