Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings on the West Coast have not been thoroughly covered in print until now. Between 1909 and 1959, Wright designed a total of 38 structures up and down the West Coast, from Seattle to Southern California. These include well-known structures such as the Marin County Civic Center, V.C. Morris gift shop, now Xanadu Gallery at 140 Maiden Lane, San Francisco, and Hollyhock House in Los Angeles, and many lesser-known gems such as the 1909 Stewart House near Santa Barbara.

Join us for a comprehensive survey of Wright's West Coast legacy including insights on the clients' relationship with Wright, gleaned from correspondence and interviews with many original and current owners. This book features over 200 photographs by veteran architectural photographer Joel Puliatti and 50 archival images, many of which have never been seen in print.
