This amazing book offers a fascinating look into Frank Lloyd Wright's creative process--and offers simple suggestions and activities for unleashing your own imagination!
Frank Lloyd Wright looked to nature for inspiration. “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you," he famously said. It is “necessary to learn from trees, flowers, shells—objects which contain truths of form following function.” How to Think Like Frank Lloyd Wright takes these lessons to heart, transforming this notion into practical exercises that empower you to create original patterns, designs, drawings, structures, and more. Using items found in nature--such as leaves, insects, seashells--and looking at Wright's own sketches, abstractions, and finished works, this book offers a template for aspiring artists and architects to emulate his creative process. Projects such as designing a stained glass window to sketching houses for different habitats, to creating graphics inspired by nature will encourage artists to look at the world in a whole new way!
This unique exploration of some of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous works--and the methodology behind them--is part history, part guided sketch book, and most importantly, the perfect tool to spark the imagination of the next generation of visionaries.
