Explored the Robie House recently and this book was an insightful extension of the tour. Full of interesting details about the construction. Excellent research done to get inside Wright's design process. My only complaint is the last chapter, which goes on a tangent about Fallingwater without connecting it back to the Robie House. Otherwise great little coffee table book.
