Frank Lloyd Wright's Fireplaces
Frank Lloyd Wright's Fireplaces captures the appeal that hearths held for Wright, who loved "to see the fire burning deep in the masonry of the house itself." Most of his fireplace were brick or stone, and they were massive - cavelike centers that beckoned everyone with their warmth and light. Examples here show the many variations Wright achieved from his earliest work in the Chicago area through the Prairie houses, the Chicago textile-block designs, the Usonian residence, masterpieces like Fallingwater, and his own three homes, which together received forty-four fireplaces.
