Wright Space: Pattern and Meaning in Frank Lloyd's Wright's Housesby Grant Hildebrand
Synopses & Reviews
The text of The Wright Space is enhanced by photographs, plans, and nine exquisitely drawn diagrams of key dwellings specially prepared by William Hook. Addressed to architects, landscape architects, architectural historians, environmental psychologists, anthropologists, philosophers of anesthetics, and the lay public with an interest in these subjects, 'The Wright Space' is essential reading for anyone who has ever lived in, looked at, or studied Frank Lloyd Wright's remarkable houses.
Book News Annotation:
Hildebrand presents detailed analyses of 33 of Wright's major houses in terms of their spatial characteristics, seeking (and finding) a plausible explanation of why--in spite of numerous conspicuous and serious faults--Wright's houses were built and valued by so many clients. Includes photographs, architectural drawings, and nine two-color diagrams of key dwellings, specially drawn by William Hook. 101/2x10
