Price Tower -- Frank Lloyd Wright


"The tree that escaped the crowded forest" was what Wright called his Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Truth be told, he'd designed an earlier version of this for the Manhattan jungle that wasn't built, and he was eager to see it erected anywhere. Discounting his earlier collaborations with Louis Sullivan, the Price Tower was his only built skyscraper. More pictures here.
