Prairie Skyscraper: Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower (paperback)
by Anthony Alofsin (Editor), Joseph M. Siry, Hilary Ballon, Pat Kirkham, Scott W. Perkins
Prairie Skyscraper traces the history and evolution of Wright's recently restored nineteen-story-skyscraper masterwork, which takes its place beside the S.C. Johnson Wax Research Tower as one of Wright's only two vertical structures and - at 221 feet tall - his largest. Built as a multi-use skyscraper in 1956, the building is now a luxury hotel and arts center, featuring collections of the works of Bruce Goff and Frank Lloyd Wright, and soon a new museum facility designed by Zaha Hadid. Now, with all-new color photography, we are given access to this extraordinary architectural gem and the Wright-designed furnishings custom made for it. Publisher: Rizzoli.
