Frank Lloyd Wright is easily the most famous architect in history and arguably the most original and innovative. His career spanned the entire development of modern architecture and was very important in shaping it despite his refusal to join the prominent architectural associations of his day. His buildings stand as a monument to the genius and inventiveness which be brought to every aspect of his work and many are available for tours around the country.
There is an index of Frank Lloyd Wright material at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation site. Oxford University Press at 1-800-451-7556 also has a CD-ROM collection of 5,000 drawings of over 850 projects from 1887 to 1959, when Wright passed away.
