Frank Lloyd Wright – NOMAD

This is the title of a book on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. It connects philosophical concepts like nomadology, rhizome or smooth space to the desert dwelling Taliesin West in Scottsdale (AZ). The book investigates architectural question on moving, hiding and time. It is a poetic combination of text and images. The images have been shot by Dutch artist Huubke Rademakers. The images refer to the 1911 Wasmuth photobook by Frank Lloyd Wright. The book presents a new and strongly  needed perspective on architecture and nomadology. The book is now under review.
