Frank Lloyd Wright-Natural Design
An unsung prophet of todays green movement in architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright was an innovator of eco-sensitive design generations ahead of his time. An architect and designer of far-reaching vision, it is not surprising that Frank Lloyd Wright anticipated many of the hallmarks of todays green movement. This book explores Wright's lessons on how climate, sustainability, sunlight, modern technology, local materials, and passive environmental controls can become the inspiration for excellent design, and highlights a selection of Wright's buildings to show how he dealt with these issues. It shows how Wright evolved certain ideas that continue to spur discussions of green architecture design today. Photographs by Alan Weintraub. Text by Alan Hess. 224 pages. Hardcover.
