Frank Lloyd Wright in New York

Frank Lloyd Wright in New York: The Plaza Years, 1954-1959, examines the momentous five-year period when one of the world's greatest architects and one of the world's greatest cities dynamically coexisted. Authors Jane Hession and Debra Pickrel bring each of these unequalled characters to life, exploring the fascinating contradiction between Wright's often-voiced disdain of New York and his pride and pleasure in living in one of the city's great landmarks: the Plaza Hotel.

From his suite, or "Taliesin the Third," as it became known, Wright supervised construction of the Guggenheim, sparred with the New York press, and received many famous visitors such as Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller.

The book also includes a foreword by Mike Wallace of CBS News/60 Minutes fame, whose seminal interviews of Wright in the 1950s were two of his career favorites.

 Originally released in 2007, the book received the 2008 Independent Publisher Awards Gold Medal for Architecture. Now a specially revised 10th anniversary printing features a new postscript relaying the losses, gains, and alterations to Wright’s work in New York City since the book’s original publication, as well as enhanced photos and updated bios.
