Summary
  • "The Darwin D. Martin House in Buffalo, New York, is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's earliest and most important masterpieces. Built in the prairie style, this large residential complex was designed, landscaped, and extensively furnished by the architect. The history of its creation, recorded in over four hundred letters exchanged between Wright and Martin, forms a biography not only of the house but also of its architect and client."
  • "In this account of the Martin House commission, Jack Quinan mines the Wright-Martin correspondence, along with the architecture of the house (currently under restoration), to investigate Wright's oft-made claim that his buildings "portray" their clients. The author presents an account of one of Wright's greatest works of "architecture as portraiture" that lends new insight into the ambitions and working methods of this much-studied architect."--Jacket
