The life and work of visionary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright launches our new activity book series, Meet the Architect!, an expansion of our Meet the Artist! series. Flaps, cutouts, and pull tabs, take readers on a fascinating journey through Wright's famous works--the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Fallingwater, and Taliesin, among others--and the materials and techniques he used to create them. This hands-on introduction will inspire budding architects from ages eight to eighty.


Patricia Geis, a graphic designer based in Barcelona, Spain, is the author of the critically acclaimed Meet the Artist! series, which includes titles on Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, and Leonardo da Vinci.


Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews:

"A great architect's development and legacy, explored with help from pop-ups, flaps, and other engineered effects. Current or period photographs of Wright's projects are enhanced by special features, such as a slider showing Fallingwater's site before and after construction, to capture a concrete sense of his aesthetic and show directly his mastery of light and space. A boon to budding builders and architects."

School Library Journal:

"Each page has a slightly different interactive element that is very well executed and engaging."
