Summary "Originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1954, the Bachman-Wilson House now resides, fully restored, in the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. It is an example of what Wright called Usonian architecture, a distinctly American and democratic style of residential architecture he developed during the Great Depression to be within the reach of the average middle-class family, without sacrificing quality. The house was originally situated in New Jersey but, after being threatened by repeated flooding, the entire structure was dismantled and transported to Crystal Bridges. Meticulously reconstructed from the original plans, the house opened to the public in the autumn of 2015. This fully illustrated publication highlights this classic structure, and further cements the architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright."-- Provided by publisher.
