About this Book

Swaback continues the Frank Lloyd Wright tradition of thoughtful and highly intelligent strategies for making homes, rather than houses. This book can be appreciated on several levels; the easiest of which is to simply enjoy its exceptional photography of resplendent homes. Going deeper reveals a passion and clarity that is only possible from an author who has lived his every word. At its deepest level this book is an invitation to explore our own dreams about life, made more rewarding by way of design
