This hard cover book tells the story of Frank Lloyd Wright and his influence on Buffalo architecture.
Over a quarter of a century, Frank Lloyd Wright provided the city of Buffalo with a series of remarkable designs. These houses, commercial buildings, and unbuilt projects, devised between 1903 and 1929, link the architect's early Prairie period to his magnificent reaction to Modernism.
Author and former Martin House Senior Curator, Jack Quinan, introduces a cast of characters linked by their association with the Larkin Company, the client that first drew Wright to Buffalo. A lifelong bond united the architect and Darwin D. Martin, Wright's most fervent supporter at the Larkin Company. A reliable patron and close friend, Martin steered crucial jobs Wright's way and afforded him generous loans.
