Frank Lloyd Wright's Rosenbaum House : The Birth and Rebirth of an American Treasure
Architecture critic Peter Blake wrote in 1960 that "during the 1930s, Wright built four structures of a beauty unexcelled in America before or since." One of the four was the Rosenbaum House, the subject of this book. Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) developed the "Usonian" home as low-cost housing for newlyweds (as Stanley and Mildred Rosenbaum were in 1939, when construction began on their house) and others without a lot of money to spend. Far ahead of its time, the versatile design formed the basis for some of Wright's best residences.
