520    Published for a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern 
       Art, this catalog reveals new perspectives on the work of 
       Frank Lloyd Wright, a designer so prolific and familiar as
       to nearly preclude critical reexamination. Structured as a
       series of inquiries into the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation
       Archives at Taliesin West, Arizona (recently acquired by 
       MoMA and Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia
       University), the book is a collection of scholarly 
       explorations rather than an attempt to construct a master 
       narrative. Each chapter centers on a key object from the 
       archive that an invited author has "unpacked"-- tracing 
       its meanings and connections, and juxtaposing it with 
       other works from the archive, from MoMA, or from outside 
       collections. Wright's quest to build a mile-high 
       skyscraper reveals him to be one of the earliest celebrity
       architects, using television, press relations and other 
       forms of mass media to advance his own self-crafted image.
       A little-known project for a Rosenwald School for African-
       American children, together with other projects that 
       engage Japanese and Native American culture, ask 
       provocative questions about Wright's positions on race and
       cultural identity. Still other investigations engage the 
       architect's lifelong dedication to affordable and do-it-
       yourself housing, as well as the ecological systems, both 
       social and environmental, that informed his approach to 
       cities, landscapes and even ornament. The publication aims
       to open up Wright's work to questions, interrogations and 
       debates, and to highlight interpretations by contemporary 
       scholars, both established Wright experts and others 
       considering this iconic figure from new and illuminating
