FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT: NATURAL DESIGN, ORGANIC ARCHITECTURE: LESSONS FOR BUILDING GREEN FROM AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL by Alan Weintraub and Alan Hess

This book explores Wright’s lessons on how climate, sustainability, sunlight, modern technology, local materials, and passive environmental controls can become the inspiration for excellent design, and highlights a selection of Wright’s buildings to show how he dealt with these issues. The book is organized by the green concepts Wright used—including passive solar design and the use of thermal massing, passive berm insulation, environmentally sensitive landscaping, passive ventilation systems, passive natural light, and intelligent and artful adaptation of technology—with examples from different houses. It shows how Wright evolved certain ideas that continue to spur discussions of green architecture design today.
