Lloyd Wright: Architect (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
While the formidable reputation of his father overshadows him, Lloyd Wright (1890-1972) and his work are drawing more and more attention. This, the only monograph on his buildings and projects, grew out of an 1971 exhibition held at UC Santa Barbara. After an apprenticeship under Irving Gill, Lloyd Wright moved to Los Angeles, where he was landscaper and construction supervisor for several of his father's projects, including the Hollyhock House. His own work took off from his father's, being even bolder and more expressionistic, perhaps a reflection of his early work in the department at Paramount Pictures. His most famous building is the Sowden house, while other projects include the first two shells for the Hollywood Bowl and the Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes.
