Pulitzer Prize?winning critic Ada Louise Huxtable?s biography of America?s greatest architect
Renowned architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable?s biography Frank Lloyd Wright looks at the architect and the man, from his tumultuous personal life to his long career as a master builder. Along the way she introduces Wright?s masterpieces? from the tranquil Fallingwater to Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder?not only exploring the mind of the man who drew the blueprints but also delving into the very heart of the medium, which he changed forever.
An ideal match: Ada Louise Huxtable, the finest architecture critic the United States has, takes on the willful visionary Wright.
