Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
America's most famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, was born in 1867 in the rolling hills of Richland Center, Wisconsin, to a family of Unitarians. Even with world-class commissions like New York City's Guggenheim Museum, his organic architecture remains rooted in Wisconsin's landscape, from affordable-housing prototypes in Milwaukee to his summer home and architecture school in rural Spring Green. This comprehensive guide to Wright's designs (and those of his prot g s) that are open to the public--as well as insider historical information about sites now demolished, and those available for "drive-bys" only--is for the architecture or history fan looking for tours, overnight stays or creative inspiration.
