Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810946262, Hardcover)America's most famous architect was obsessed with small houses. Even though this exciting aspect of his work has been long overlooked, the truth is that Frank Lloyd Wright spent most of his career addressing the problems of houses intended for individuals or small families of modest means. In the only book on the master architect to focus on "the house of moderate cost," Wright expert Diane Maddex takes the reader inside a selection of his small houses from across the country, turning the spotlight on Wright's ingenious solutions to make these homes look and feel large.

"Wright-Sized Houses: Frank Lloyd Wright's Solutions for Making Small Houses Feel Big is the first book to feature the small houses of this world-renowned architect. It presents a wealth of ideas for how to build or redesign a home to make it feel far more spacious and restful than a larger house. Diane Maddex outlines dozens of Wright's principles for making less seem like more: roofs that epitomize the sense of shelter, windows that capture the outdoors, materials that respect nature, open plans that create a relaxed lifestyle, built-ins that conserve space, ornament that grows naturally from the design. Profiles of ten small houses show how all of Wright's techniques combine to make even 1,200 square feet feel like a mansion. For guidance on making a small house more rewarding, Wright-Sized Houses offers a refreshing new window into why even in the twenty-first century Wright remains the household word for architect."--BOOK JACKET.
