Wright 1943-59

Ask people to name an architect and Frank Lloyd Wright would top many lists. It’s hard to minimize his influence on modern architecture, even 50 years after this death. Taschen, one of my favorite large format publishers, are producing a three-volume monograph, which includes all his designs, both realized and unrealized. I just received the third volume, featuring his later work, as a gift. And what a gift! Weighing in at thirteen pounds, 12.5 x 16 inches in size, and close to 600 pages, this massive book details over 1100 projects. The photos and drawings are breathtaking. Even a cursory glance leaves you overwhelmed by the audacity and visionary brilliance of Wright’s work.
