Florida Southern College and the Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright

"...out of the ground and into the light, a child of the sun."
Frank Lloyd Wright describing work at Florida Southern College.


While I found the following references and web sites helpful, enlightening and sometimes entertaining, what follows is by no means anything resembling a complete Frank Lloyd Wright reference list.  More has been published on this man and his works than can be assimilated in a normal lifetime.  A Google search for Frank Lloyd Wright quickly turns up 5,420,000 results.

An excellent, comprehensive source of original material and an extensive collection of books, many originals, can be found at the Florida Southern College Library.  Randall M. MacDonald has written A Bibliography of Materials in Roux Library, which is available through the FSC Library.
