I've long marveled at Lloyd Wright's Southern California residences and wondered when a book like this might appear. His buildings are so sensual, complex and full of surprises that any large-format photo collection couldn't help but be magnificently beautiful. And this one certainly is. My only diappointments with the book came in regard to the paucity of floorplans and the many extant buildings which receive only a token mention and a tiny photo in the appendix.
Fabulous documentation by architectual photographer Alan Weintraub. He put so much emphasis to the oevre of Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. that his pictures of the buildings and their sphere are being kept in a unique and extraordinary way. It seems if you would feel the sense of these mystical, wonderful and modernistic buildings. They seems to embrace the surroundings and Lloyd Wright always put his tremendous individualistic detail to each design. The book contains extensive vintage photographs that are able to show the completeness of the design. It's a great book.
The photos of the Wayfarer's chapel in Palos Verdes, CA is worth half the price of the book. I know it had a profound influence on an architect friend, Lee A. Ward A.I.A. in Napa, on his way to Taliasen West.
