|Frank Lloyd Wright's groundbreaking designs, innovative construction techniques, and inviting interiors continue to astound and inspire generations of architects and nonarchitects alike. The only comprehensive collection of Wright-designed buildings open to the public in the United States and Japan, Wright Sites has been revised and expanded to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the architect's birth in June 1867. The fourth edition of our best-selling guidebook contains twenty new sites, updated site descriptions and access information, and, for the first time, color photographs. It also includes itineraries for Wright road trips, a list of archives, and a selected bibliography. The introduction, revised for this edition, is by Jack Quinan, a founding member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and author of Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House.|
Joel Hoglund is the Communications and Events Manager of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to save Wright-designed buildings from destruction and neglect, as well as educate the public about the architect's influential role in American history and culture. Based in Chicago, Wright's adopted city, the conservancy facilitates the preservation and maintenance of the remaining structures designed by Frank Lloyd Wright through education, advocacy, preservation easements, and technical services.
Jack Quinan, the introducer, is a founding member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, a retired professor of art history at SUNY Buffalo, and the author of two books on Wright's work: Frank Lloyd Wright's Buffalo Venture (Pomegranate, 2012) and Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House: Architecture as Portraiture (PAP, 2004).
