"From the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic for the New York Times comes an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of the world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In this book, Huxtable looks at the architect and the man, exploring the sources of his tumultuous and troubled life and his long career as a master builder as well as his search for lasting, true love. Huxtable discusses Wright's masterpieces, including Taliesin, rebuilt after tragedy and murder; the Imperial Hotel, one of the few structures that survived the Japanese catastrophic 1923 earthquake; and the tranquil Fallingwater visited by millions each year. Through the journey, Huxtable takes us not only into the mind of the man who drew the blueprints, but also into the very heart of the medium, which he changed forever"--Container

New York : a documentary film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eighth episode of the award-winning series New York: A Documentary Film chronicles the rise and fall of the World Trade Center, whose epic fifty-year history sheds new light on every theme and issue in the city's long march to the center of the world. Propelled forward in the 1960s by the immense power of David and Nelson Rockefeller and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the world's two tallest buildings would rise despite political controversy, daunting engineering challenges, withering critical scorn and the threat of financial disaster. In the end, a spectacular 45-minute escapade by a high-wire artist named Philippe Petit and New York's astonishing renaissance would transform the towers into a worldwide icon--the ultimate symbol of an economic system that had come to dominate much of the planet. The episode comes to a climax with the harrowing events of September 11, 2001--and the extraordinary response of the city's people to the worst crisis in their history."--Container
