    schema:reviewBody ""Usonia, New York tells the story of a group of idealistic men and women who, following World War II, enlisted Frank Lloyd Wright to design and help them build a cooperative utopian community near Pleasantville, New York. Through both historic memorabilia and contemporary color photographs, this book reveals the still-thriving community founded on concepts in his Broadacre City proposals. Over the years, thousands of architects, scholars, planners, and students have visited the community, but no book has yet appeared on this remarkable story. Reisley, one of the early members of Usonia (and still a resident), has written the first full account to illuminate the events, problems, and passions of a democratic group of people creating a community with America's most famous - and most famously outspoken - architect." "Usonia, New York features Wright's famous drawings of the plan of Usonia; stories of Wright's designs for the Friedman (Toyhill), Serlin, Miller, and Auerbach houses; photos by Pedro Guerrero of Wright's early visits to the community; the author's recollections of building his own home with Wright; and an illustrated index of the forty-seven homes that make up Usonia."--Jacket." ;
