(WRIGHT, Frank Lloyd). SERGEANT, John. Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian Houses : The Case for Organic Architecture. [Foreword by Lionel March]. New York: Whitney Library of Design, an imprint of Watson-Guptill Publications, (1978). Third Printing. Pp. (4),-207,(1). Illustrated in black and white. Triple column. Large square 8vo, grey cloth with copper-coloured lettering to spine. "Frank Lloyd Wright's contribution to architecture is undisputed. And today Wright's later work -- his Usonian houses, his Taliesin working communities, and his plan for Broadacre City -- has a new relevance as energy conservation and ecological integrity have become the dominant concerns of the environmental design professions and the modern movement in architecture is undergoing serious appraisal. In this well-illustrated and thoroughly documented book, the late period of Wright's prolific career is reassessed and his philosophy of building with nature rather than against it is analyzed." - from the dustjacket.
