Surveying over 125 years this book traces the trends of organic architecture, architecture that interprets a building's design, structure, use, and life as an organic thing. Showcasing the work of architects such as Louis Sullivan, Frank Furness, Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff to lesser knowns these architects embraced a fresh style that used modern techniques blended with an ageless natural landscape. Unexpectedly organic design reflects an exuberant, opulent, and at times extravagant complexity of line, form, texture, structure, and color. Less is not necessarily more in Organic design.
