Summary, etc.: "From the way we build to the way we live, Frank Lloyd Wright's influence on American architecture is visible all around us. Now renowned architecture critic Ada Louis Huxtable offers an outstanding look at the architect and the man--his tumultuous and troubled life, his long career as a master builder, and his painful search for love. Along the way Huxtable introduces Wright's masterpieces--from the tranquil Fallingwater to Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder--exploring not only the mind of the man who drew the blueprints but also delving into the very heart of the medium, which he changed forever."--P. [4] of cover.
Subject: Wright, Frank Lloyd, 1867-1959.
