A timely sourcebook of ideas and inspirations for today from the legendary American architect. 50 Lessons to Learn from Frank Lloyd Wright presents the work and imaginings of this beloved architect in an accessible and compelling form--including color photographs, drawings, quotations from the writings, as well as newly commissioned diagrams and thoughtful analysis by the authors--which allows us to glean lessons from the American master that provide inspiration for the design of our own homes and interior spaces.

Here the authors share fifty lessons, or "learning points," with an eye to Wright-designed houses and interiors, ranging from "Screen the Light," "Focus on Decoration," and "Small Is Beautiful" to "Building with the Land," "Working with the Desert," and "Learning from Japan." Each lesson is accompanied by pearls of wisdom gleaned from the master's trove of writings on architecture and design.

This volume offers an informal and yet richly detailed introduction to this seminal figure of architecture, world-famous for his romantic Fallingwater and magical Guggenheim Museum, and will be of much interest to the budding architecture enthusiast as well as to the die-hard fan of Frank Lloyd Wright.
