Prairie Skyscraper : Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower
Richard TownsendISBN: 0847827542;
Book DescriptionPrairie Skyscraper traces the history and evolution of Wright's recently restored nineteen-story-skyscraper masterwork, which takes its place beside the S.C. Johnson Wax Research Tower as one of Wright's only two vertical structures-and, at 221 feet tall-his largest. Built as a multi-use skyscraper in 1956, the building is now a luxury hotel and arts center, featuring collections of the works of Bruce Goff and Frank Lloyd Wright, and soon a new museum facility designed by Zaha Hadid. Now,with all-new color photography, we are given access to this extraordinary architectural gem and the Wright-designed furnishings custom made for it.
