Price Tower

Frank Lloyd Wright
1954-55




The skyscraper was not a form congenial to Wright who thought of his work in natural terms. But using the metaphor of the tree, Wright could create a vertical structure, in this case with the service core as the trunk and the floors cantilevered from it, like branches. See also the Kaden Tower in Louisville, Kentucky.
