Abstract:

"Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is acknowledged as America's greatest architect. Near the end of his life, in 1958, Wright published The Living City, the final version of his vision of an ideal social order. Indeed, all of his buildings and projects can be seen, retrospectively, as prototypes and proposals, models for the new, decentralized pattern of living that he offered as a blueprint for the future and from which we have much to learn today."--BOOK JACKET.
