Summary

Summary

Best known for his strikingly modern structures, Frank Lloyd Wright was also a highly influential landscape designer. The Gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright is the first book in full color to focus on Wright's four most famous residential landscapes: his first home and studio in Oak Park, Illinois; his magnificent 3,000-acre summer home Taliesin, in Wisconsin; his 600-acre winter home Taliesin West, in Arizona; and Fallingwater, in Pennsylvania, the commission that made him world famous. The product of extended visits to properties associated with Wright, as well as extensive interviews with surviving colleagues and students, the book also explores the Japanese and Mayan landscapes that inspired Wright and his appreciation of the stone meeting circles and naturalistic prairie plantings of the great landscape architect Jens Jensen. Planting plans allow readers to create prairie- and desert-style gardens of their very own.
