"This major study based on the career of the world-famous American architect Frank Lloyd Wright is of special importance, as it concentrates for the first time on the decorative arts in many of the important buildings he designed. This is an aspect of Wright's contribution to modern architecture and design that has been insufficiency studied up to now. Wright's aim always was to create a totally cohesive environment for his clients: no detail was too small for his attention, for all the many elements--furniture, curtains, rugs, decorative window glass, lighting fixtures, vases, etc.--were so designed that each contributed to the total aesthetic impact of the individual space or building. By means of the book's authoritative text and over 200 halftones and color plates we can understand fully the beauty and complexity of Wright's achievement in this field."--book jacket.
