Abstract:

Now available in paperback, "The California Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright" (first published as "Romanza") is the first book to focus exclusively on Wright's commercial and residential work in the Golden State, from the 1909 Stewart House to the Marin County Civic Center designed 50 years later. These timelessly elegant and striking buildings -- 24 in all -- are known collectively as Wright's "romanza," or romance, acknowledging the architect's love for California. Each of these classic edifices dynamically demonstrates Wright's genius for reflecting and enhancing the natural terrain with his creations. Incisive essays provide a critical overview and history of each structure and are generously illustrated with photographs, floor plans, and Wright's own renderings. This volume is an essential visual reference work that will appeal to anyone fascinated by the oeuvre of the 20th century's most influential architect.
