Title: Domino’s Mansion, Thomas Monaghan, Gunner Birkerts And The Spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright  (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Planning Research Organization For A Better Environment Press, Troy, Michigan)

Author: Bugbee, Gordon P.; Forward by Scully, Vincent

Description: "Domino's Mansion" shows how lessons of Frank Lloyd Wright helped to harmonize a large corporate office building near Ann Arbor, Michigan, with its natural setting. Thomas Monaghan, President of Domino's Pizza, Inc., admires Wright. His original goal at Domino's Farms was to fulfill an unbuilt Prairie mansion design of Wright's as his home office building. Gunnar Birkerts, his architect, applied Wright's organic design process to produce instead a dramatic half-mile-long building as nerve center to the world's largest pizza distribution network. The result revives Wright's ever-so-timely mandate to accommodate nature in human habitation. It also includes the largest collection of Wrightian artifacts existing anywhere outside of the buildings Wright designed. Original HC cover price $40.00. (First Edition)

Size: 9.75 x 12.25.
