Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the world's greatest contemporary architects. While Fallingwater is his best-known work, Wright designed over 1,000 buildings during his lifetime. Yet none of the three fraternity houses he planned during his career, in 1934, 1941, and 1952 were ever built. This book chronicles the genesis, development, and ultimate abandonment of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity house Wright created for students of the University of Florida, as told by a then-architecture student and member of the ZBT fraternity who assisted Wright. Containing detailed prints of Wright's drawings for all three planned fraternity houses in addition to his completed buildings at Florida Southern College, Frank Lloyd Wright at the University of Florida offers a fascinating view into Wright's frustrating struggles to complete these projects.
