Reviews

He was the man called 'the Michelangelo of the 20th century' by the architect Eero Saarinen, so it's no surprise that 150 years after his birth, the work of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright still provides plenty to unpack.--Olivia B. Waxman "Time "
Frank Lloyd Wright is synonymous with American architecture.--Alexandra Alexa "Artsy "
It is always the year of Frank Lloyd Wright, so monumentally does he loom over American architecture.--Paul Goldberger "Vanity Fair "
The words 'American architect' feel a little bare when applied to Wright--convention pushes for the addition of a superlative, such as 'greatest' or 'best loved.'--Will Wiles "Apollo "
a fascinating window into America's cultural past... read the short, sharp essays in the catalog--Alexandra Lange "Curbed "
Positions the architect as a consummate innovator -- not outside of history, but very much of his time, with ideas that resonate still.--Kristina Ljubanovic "The Globe and Mail "
an ambitious catalogue featuring wide-ranging essays--Jonathan Glancey "The Art Newspaper "
Frank Lloyd Wright was a radical architect, designer, thinker, and intellectual.--Lauren Walser "National Trust for Historic Preservation "
remarkable... a fresh age in Wright scholarship... shows that Wright's long career, as multidimensional and accomplished as that of almost any architect in history, was richer and more complex than even admiring critics knew.--Paul Goldberger "Bloomberg Business Week "
Clearly written and tightly focused... this hefty volume would be a nice library addition for general readers curious about American urban history.--Marilyn Gates "New York Journal of Books "
Buildings are dynamic things, not static objects. A look through Wright's archive reminds us that some will exist only in our imaginations, some will be lived in exactly as they were first designed, and others will be destroyed or altered beyond recognition.--Julian Rose "Bookforum "
