From the way we build to the way we live, Frank Lloyd Wright's influence on American architecture is visible all around us. Now America's Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable - architecture writer for The Wall Street Journal, previously chief architecture critic for The New York Times for nearly twenty years - offers a look at the architect and the man. She explores the sources of his tumultuous and troubled life, his long career as a master builder, and his painful search for love. Along the way, Huxtable introduces readers to Wright's masterpieces: Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder; the Imperial Hotel, one of the few structures left standing after Japan's catastrophic 1923 earthquake; and tranquil Fallingwater, to which millions have traveled to experience its quiet grace. Through this 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.
