Description

The product of extended visits to properties associated with Wright, and extensive interviews with surviving colleagues and students, this is the first book in full colour to focus on Wright's four most famous residential landscapes - his first home and studio at Oak Park, Illinois; his magnificent 3,000 acre summer home Taliesin, Wisconsin; his 600-acre winter home Taliesin West, Arizona; and Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, the commission that made him world famous.

Featuring an introduction by James Van Sweden, America's leading garden designer and landscape architect, this book highlights a revolutionary take on garden design. It also explores the source of Wright's inspiration in Japanese and Mayan landscapes as well as his appreciation of the stone meeting circles and naturalistic prairie plantings of the great landscape architect Jens Jensen. Two final chapters offer planting plans for a prairie-style and a desert-style garden inspired by Wright's designs.

The author

Derek Fell is the author of several books on artists' gardens, including Monet's, Van Gogh's and Renoir's, as well as many gardening books.

James van Sweden is America's leading garden designer and landscape architect based in Washington D.C. His revolutionary garden designs often combine dramatic informal plantings with the practical beauty of architectural 'bones' that anchor his gardens to the ground. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects and the recipient of many distinguished awards. His work is published widely in gardening books and periodicals and he is a frequent guest on television and radio shows. Image © Richard Felber
