Guide to Frank Lloyd Wright's California
Frank Lloyd Wright is recognized as the "father of modern architecture," an authentic American genius whose creative output spanned nearly seventy years. To bring people closer to the earth and its elements, argued Wright, a structure should seek to draw the outside in. His non-traditional angles, glass walls, and cantilevered decks and roofs work dramatic magic on the varied land- and seascapes of California.
In this book are twenty-four examples. From the "Hollyhock House" in Los Angeles to the Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael and Pilgrim Congregational Church in Redding, Zimmerman's photographs, clear instructions, maps, and succinct project descriptions locate sites in Northern California, Southern California, and the Central Valley. Information about how, when, and whether or not to photograph the sites, tour the buildings and approach the owners is also included.
