Duration: 6 hours 45 minutes
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic for The New York Times comes an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of the world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In this book, Huxtable looks at the architect and the man, exploring the sources of his tumultuous and troubled life and his long career as a master builder, as well as his search for lasting, true love. Huxtable discusses Wright's masterpieces, including Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder; the Imperial Hotel, one of the few structures that survived the catastrophic 1923 Japanese earthquake; and the tranquil Fallingwater visited by millions each year. Through the journey, Huxtable takes us not only into the mind of the man who drew the blueprints, but also into the very heart of the medium, which he changed forever.
