Frank Lloyd Wright often expressed a passionate contempt for America's great cities, reserving a special wrath for New York. And yet, as Herbert Muschamp argues with verve and conviction in this book, Gotham played a vital part in shaping Wright's "second career" galvanizing the architect's energies after the scandal-ridden decades during which he built almost nothing.
Man About Town describes Wright's Broadacre City proposals and includes photographs of his drawings for such major unbuilt New York projects as the Steel Cathedral for a Million People, the St. Mark's Apartment Towers, the Manhattan Sports Pavilion, and the Ellis Island "Key Project," in addition to previously unpublished photographs of "Taliesin the Third."
Herbert Muschamp is currently working on a study of New York architecture by Philip Johnson.
