Summary
"A comprehensive study of the sacred buildings built and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, this book offers scholarly discussion with analytical drawings and photographs. These projects represent different periods of Wright's career (from 1886 to 1958), new building technologies, and application of his design concepts as demonstrated in his sacred architecture. This unique contribution will be useful to all those interested in Wright's architecture and theory as well as in sacred architecture"--
