Format: Hardcover
I think the premise of the book is right on target. FLW best work was in his small houses. They are much harder to design, build and were done so on a tight budget. The pictures of the houses in the book are fantastic. They are current day pictures versus pictures taken 10 or 20 years ago.
The text is not well written. Could have done a better job.

HASH(0x9e413624) out of 5 stars One of the best Wright books out there May 10 2006
By P. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful picture book that keeps its title's promise. Maddex actually identifies the specific FLW solutions for making small houses feel big. Her description of these solutions are well-written and aimed at appealing to the intelligent layman. Mercifully, she avoids the academic, pedantic and patronizing tone. A real pleasure. Couldn't recommend more highly.

HASH(0x9e413678) out of 5 stars inspiring Jan. 6 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The pictures and text boxes do a terrific job of explaining the reasons that Wright's architecture works. The themes of unity, making walls disappear with windows, use of natural materials and building for the site can be applied to many architectural styles, not just the prarie style he is known for

HASH(0x9e41384c) out of 5 stars Very good synthesis of Wright's work Feb. 23 2007
By L. Dubarry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I really liked this book. Quite well structured, it presents first key characteristics of Wright's architecture apearing in Prairie but also Usonian houses.

The second part gives full details of some houses (mainly Usonian since the theme is about "making small houses feel big")

Special interest for Isabel Roberts house, River Forest (on front and back cover pages) which is to my mind Wright's Masterwork joining Prairie and Usonian concepts.

Photos are nice and drawings are also indicated (with scale and orientation).

The only point I disliked is the fact comments relative to photos are not always fully precise : they could have highlighted a bit more key characteristics quoted in book's first part. The author has also preferred giving some details about Owners rather than focusing only on architecture.

HASH(0x9e413e70) out of 5 stars Wright-Sized Book for custom homes. Aug. 2 2007
By K. Crockett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am building a custom home and I keep going back to this book for inspiration and important details. I have a library of at least 20 other FLW (Frank Lloyd Wright) books, but this is the most up-to-date and most on target reference for new home design. The photographs are large and focused on details, not just exterior elevations. Doors, windows, roofs, entrances and many other important features are explained and given an indepth perspective. This is a must have for any FLW library and I guarantee you will be handing this to to your architect if you want FLW details in your custom home. A great read.
