Frank Lloyd Wright: Designs for an American Landscape, 1922–1932

Publication, June 1996

In 1922, when Frank Lloyd Wright returned permanently to the United States, he chose not to refine and simplify the course and cause of his earlier work, but rather to reinvent himself—in new territory, for new clients, in projects of greater scale, and with a new agenda dictated by a newly mobile America. Frank Lloyd Wright: Designs for an American Landscape, 1922–1932 presents five revolutionary unbuilt projects by Frank Lloyd Wright: the Doheny Ranch development, the Lake Tahoe summer colony, the A. M. Johnson desert compound, the Gordon Strong Automobile Objective and the hotel, and houses for San Marcos in the Desert.
