The Future of Architecture

by Frank Lloyd Wright.Horizon. $7.50.
A collection — embellished by superb photographs - of Mr. Wright’s lectures and other dicta over the last fifty years. It sets forth his ideas on the relation of buildings to landscape and on the function of houses; reiterates his contempt for Renaissance architecture; proposes cures for traffic congestion. While Wright’s first concern is with architectural principle and practice, he includes some engaging side lights on his own character and some lively theories about the world at large. An author who is both so highly original an artist and so stubbornly opinionated a man is almost incapable of being dull.
