About the Author

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to save Wright-designed buildings from destruction and neglect, as well as educate the public about the architect's influential role in American history and culture. Based in Chicago, Wright's adopted city, the conservancy facilitates the preservation and maintenance of the remaining structures designed by Frank Lloyd Wright through education, advocacy, preservation easements, and technical services. Jack Quinan, the introducer, is a founding member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, a retired professor of art history at SUNY Buffalo, and the author of two books on Wright's work: Frank Lloyd Wright's Buffalo Venture (Pomegranate, 2012) and Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House: Architecture as Portraiture (PAP, 2004). Joel Hoglund is the Communications and Events Manager of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.

Reviews

"With the newest edition of Wright Sites: A Guide to Frank Lloyd Wright Public Places, Joel Hoglund of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy provides the only comprehensive guide to Wright-designed buildings open to the public in the United States and Japan. Though the book is envisioned as a guide, it also illustrates Wright's professional evolution and philosophy of organic architecture, with photographic examples of his differing regional styles as well as Prairie Style and Usonian houses." - SavingPlaces.org (website of the National Trust for Historic Preservation)
