First edition of this early work by Frank Lloyd Wright. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a very good dust jacket. Illustrated with both line drawings and photographs, many of Wright’s ideas for his Broadacre City concept of urban planning are explored in this book. Rare in the original dust jacket.

Architecture and Modern Life asks the question, "what is the effect of architecture on modern life?" What, conversely, is the effect of modern life on architecture? In a work of unique scope and variety, Brownell and Wright survey the whole field of architecture in its relation to the modern social structure.
