Description

Part of a series that aims to place buildings within their historical context, this text considers Wright's Unity Temple, Barnsdall House and Johnson Wax Administration Building. It includes specially produced technical drawings that explain how the buildings were detailed and put together. The text explains how together, the three buildings provide an insight into Wright's approach to design throughout his career, and into his aptitude for designing in three entirely different fields of architecture: office, residential and church design.show more
