The "Wright Guide" application for iPhone and iPod Touch is based on the world standard reference, The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, a complete catalog, by William Allin Storrer, Ph.D. With descriptions and a photograph of each of the built works by America's greatest architect, one knows the right building has been found when one reaches a site. There are easy links to see what buildings are nearby whatever item is being referenced, and driving directions from the user's location to any building are but a click away.
Storrer, who has visited each of these sites several times, who has met many of the original clients dating back to 1923, and who met children of earlier clients, keeps his documentation up-to date and provides useful comments on such items as client, site, construction materials, plan type and layout, date of design by Wright, and updates, restorations and/or alterations made since original construction.
- Almost 500 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, almost all with a photograph
- Directions to each building (internet connection required)
- A map showing the buildings (internet connection required)
- List of nearby buildings for each building
- Lists of the buildings by state and by date
- A searchable index of all the buildings
Updated some text. Compiled for iOS 12.3.
Ratings and Reviews
This app seriously needs an update!
Please refresh this reference guide by replacing the low-res pics from the 90’s CD-ROM release with higher-res photos and videos. It would be nice to see blueprints or 3D renderings added, also. Price should definitely be less for what you get here ... Disappointing. 😕
Terrific App, Only One Needed Improvement
This is a terrific app for anyone interested in Frank Lloyd Wright’s works. Nice descriptions and photographs of each site. The user can note which sites have been visited, and the map pins change color (from red to purple) for those sites visited. I’d give five stars if pins were color coded to show which buildings no longer exist.
Does not work - Waste of money
App will not open on my iPhone X. It is stuck on the home page!
I can tell the author does not even care about his/her work by that single screen... it features super low resolution image and pixelated menu icons. They are not even icons (that would require work) they are magnified, pixelated letters. Very disappointing for an app that charges $9.99
