Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer. Wright has been the subject of numerous books, illustrative and historical, popular and scholarly, but Larkin and Pfeiffer have still succeeded in creating something fresh and exciting.

Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture. His creative period spanned more than 70 years. Widely thought to be the greatest American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was a true pioneer, both artistically and technically. His prairie house concept†that of a low, sprawling home based upon a simple L or T figure†was the driving force behind some of his most famous houses and became a model for rural architecture across America.

A building by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is at once unmistakably individual, and evocative of an entire .

A building by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is at once unmistakably individual, and evocative of an entire era. Notable for their exceptional understanding of an organic environment, as well as for their use of steel and glass to revolutionize the interface of indoor and outdoor, Wright's designs helped announce the age of modernity, as much as they secured his own name in the annals of architectural genius.

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archivist Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer Dies at age 8. After Wright’s death, Pfeiffer established the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives, where he catalogued the collections of Wright’s drawings, manuscripts, letters, and other documents. Pfeiffer became the consummate resource for information on Wright’s body of work. His invaluable assistance in providing archival materials aided the work of many in the fields of historic preservation and architecture scholarship.

This is a superb book on America's Greatest Architect. As an Architect and Owner of a Frank Lloyd Wright house, I am very knowledgeable of FLW and I purchase every serious book published one FLW and his work. This wonderful book is loaded with superb photographs, superb drawings, many of which that have never been published before. Brooks Pfeiffer is a former Taliesin Apprentice and has had key responsibility for the operation of Talesin West. He has access to full depth of the FLW Archives and is incredibly knowledgeable of them. His other books on FLW are also well written and incredibly insightful. As an Architect living in a wonderful 1901 FLW House, I highly recommend this book.

Beautiful book, although the buyer should be aware that this is more apt for ARCHITECTS and engineers, and not mere fans of the aesthetic. I ended up giving it to my dad, who -being an architect- enjoyed it more than I could. Not an art/coffee table book, but rather, an academic/technical piece.

Very nice book. Lots of information and great pictures. Quite comprehensive a must for the person interested in the man and his work.

We saw this exhibit in person and didn't buy the book at the museum. This book really represents the exhibit and I'm so glad we have the book to cherish the memories of the exhibit. Both architect enthusiasts and non would enjoy!

9" x 8.5". English. Mainly Wright's drawings. Each drawing is accompanied by the name of the project, location, year, the size of the actual drawing, what it was drawn in and some mention where FLW signed it. There's 1 to 3 drawings per page. It's great for this used price. Otherwise I would really enjoy it being just as big as possible mainly because the dimensions of the original works were from 8" x 10" to 36" x 75" and 96" x 24". It is common when his drawings are published that they are printed too light. The good news in this book is that it appears they made an effort to not let any drawings be so light they are difficult to decipher. With a 2 page introduction by Alberto Izzo and Camillo Gubitosi, an 18 page The Architectural Innovations of FLW by Marcello Angrisani, a real nice listing of 9 1/2 pages of projects both completed and those never done a 4 1/2 page bibliography and 2 pages of books by FLW. Very nice.

Great book!

I order a Frank Lloyd Wright calendar every year. They're always beautiful and elegant. This one is no exception. Glowing colors, peaceful settings, harmonious arrangements of architecture and furnishings, and great photo composition. Wonderful!
