How to Think Like Frank Lloyd Wright
by Catherine Teegarden
Frank Lloyd Wright looked to nature for inspiration. He believed it was “necessary to learn from trees, flowers, shells—objects which contain truths of form following function.” How to Think Like Frank Lloyd Wright takes these lessons to heart and includes practical exercises that invite the reader to create original patterns, designs, drawings, structures, and more. Using items found in nature—such as leaves, insects, seashells—and looking at Wright’s own sketches, abstractions, and finished works, this book offers a template for aspiring artists and architects to emulate his creative process.
• Designing a stained glass window
• Sketching houses for different habitats
• Creating graphics inspired by nature
This unique exploration of some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous works and the methodology behind them is more than a guided sketch book—it is the perfect tool to spark the imagination of the next generation of visionaries.
