Frank Lloyd Wright (b. June 8, 1867, Richland Center, Wisconsin - d. April 9, 1959, Phoenix, Arizona).

Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer (b. 1930, South Natick, Massachusetts - d. December 31, 2017, Scottsdale, Arizona).

"This authoritative study of his drawings from the archives at Taliesin West surveys his entire career; his drafstamship is supremely beautiful and endlessly fascinating."

"Not only are the projects discussed in depth, but Pfeiffer also focuses on the drawings themselves, explaining how Wright worked, which members of his studio were involved in certain drawings, and how he later revised and annotated this legacy. Included throughout the book are numerous unbuilt project Wright made drawings for. Some, such as the 'Mile High Illinois,' are famous visionary concepts; others, such as the self-service garage and a prefabricated farm, show his extraordinary attention to the details of life - an acumen that did indeed bring him to change the way we live as well as the way we look at architecture."
