The book Taschen Wright by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer writes that widely thought to be the greatest American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was a true pioneer, both artistically and technically. At a time when reinforced concrete and steel were considered industrial building materials, Wright boldly made use of them to build private homes. 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. Wright`s designs for office and public buildings were equally groundbreaking and unique. From Fallingwater to New York`s Guggenheim Museum, his works are among the most famous in the history of architecture.

About the Series:
Every book in TASCHEN's Basic Architecture Series features:
  • approximately 120 images, including photographs, sketches, drawings, and floor plans
  • introductory essays exploring the architect's life and work, touching on family and background as well as collaborations with other architects
  • the most important works presented in chronological order, with descriptions of client and/or architect wishes as well as construction problems and resolutions
  • an appendix including a list of complete or selected works, biography, bibliography, and a map indicating the locations of the architect's most famous buildings
The author:
Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer became Frank Lloyd Wright’s apprentice at the Taliesin Fellowship in 1949. In 1957, he attended the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris, returning in 1958 to continue his apprenticeship with Wright until his death in 1959. He remains at Taliesin to this day, as director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, a vice-president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and author of numerous publications on Wright's life and work.
