Frank Lloyd Wright

Hardcover ISBN: 0714838691
Frank Lloyd Wright was the first truly organic architect. His use of recurring elemental themes and materials - open-plan layouts, clean geometric lines, water, stone, wood, prairie and sky - resulted in buildings that perfectly reflected, enhanced and assimilated their environments. Comprising more than 50 images, this book is an essential companion to a man whose influence on modern architecture has been immeasurable.

Mies in America
Hardcover ISBN: 0810967286
This study of one of the 20th century's greatest architects re-evaluates the entire body of work undertaken by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between his emigration to America in 1938 and his death in 1969. Based on considerable new research and bringing to light previously unstudied material - drawings and collages, photographs, project documents, letters, and extensive interviews with many of those who worked with Mies - this is the first study to make full and in-depth use of available archival material. Its nine essays, distinct in style of argumentation, focus, and ambition, constitute a new interpretation of a major figure in architectural history.
