The Prairie School
Frank Lloyd Wright and His Midwest ContemporariesBook - 1976
A classic study of the roots of modern architecture in America. H. Allen Brooks discusses the entire phenomenon of the Prairie School-- not just the masters but the work of their contemporaries, assessing each architect's contribution. He also traces the course of the movement itself-- how and why it came into existence, what it achieved, and what caused its abrupt end. 250 illustrations.
