During the 1920s Frank Lloyd Wright designed five projects, none of which were ever built, but which were architectural prototypes of far-reaching consequence. In them, Wright explored new technologies, geometric patterns and site-specific ideas which he continued to develop in many subsequent works. This book discusses the importance and context of these schemes using new sources and illustrations. Predicting the eventual dissolution of the American city, Wright emphasized the importance of the suburb, and this title looks at the designs produced by him during this period which offered compelling prototypes for suburban architecture. It contains essays by Anne Whitson Spirn, C. Ford Peatross and Robert L. Sweeney and gives a detailed chronology of Wright’s life and work between 1922 and 1932.
