Perhaps the most influential architect of the twentieth century, Frank Lloyd Wright designed and created commercial, public, and residential structures noted for their revolutionary, organic form. In this carefully researched and expertly rendered coloring book, technical draftsman Bruce LaFontaine has drawn 44 of Wright's major buildings for study and use by students of modern American architecture.
Among the buildings depicted here in finely detailed drawings that are ideal for coloring are Johnson Wax Company Building in Racine, Wisconsin; the inverted spiral of the Guggenheim Museum in New York City; Wright's home and studio in Oak Park, Illinois; the Robie House in Chicago; the Susan Lawrence Dana home in Springfield, Illinois; Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illinois; Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona; the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo; the Marin Country Civic Center in San Rafael, California; and many more.
In addition to providing students of architecture with an excellent sourcebook of imaginative designs, these masterly drawings also offer coloring book enthusiasts an opportunity to color a rich selection of innovative buildings that have helped transform the modern American landscape.
