CLEARANCE – LIKE NEW IN MYLAR – ONE AVAILABLE
Celebrated for his sensitive choice of materials, his innovative use of space, and his ability to merge architecture and the natural world, Frank Lloyd Wright was equally attentive to the structural and decorative details that give each of his buildings its distinctive character. His influence was profound in California, and his work there is a true reflection of this philosophy. Details of Frank Lloyd Wright: The California Work, 1909-1974 features the exterior and interior design elements of twenty-four California buildings created by this architectural legend.
Scot Zimmerman’s gorgeous full-color photographs and Judith Dunham’s illuminating text lead readers room by room through each building, focusing on such features as entryways, furniture and cabinetry, woodwork and masonry, fenestration, fireplaces, terraces and landscaping. Organized chronologically, the book represents virtually every important period and type of building in Wright’s career from textile-block houses and civic buildings to church and commercial buildings to residences, including the Morris Gift Shop and the Marin County Civic Center. Together they offer a valuable opportunity to study the master’s comprehensive approach to architecture in response to the California landscape.
