These timelessly elegant and striking buildings -- 24 in all -- are known collectively as Wrights romanza, or romance, acknowledging the architects love for California. Each of these classic edifices dynamically demonstrates Wrights genius for reflecting and enhancing the natural terrain with his creations. Incisive essays provide a critical overview and history of each structure and are generously illustrated with photographs, floor plans, and Wrights own renderings. This volume is an essential visual reference work that will appeal to anyone fascinated by the oeuvre of the 20th centurys most influential architect.
