Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings, including Fallingwater and New York's Guggenheim Museum, are iconic landmarks. Now you can create 14 of his best loved buildings using the art of kirigami (cutting and folding).
Each project features step-by-step instructions and a template that you remove from the book. You follow the lines on the template, cutting and folding to make your own model. All you need is a craft knife, a cutting mat, and a ruler. Clear cutting tips help you with the tricky stages, while photos of the finished model show you the final design. To make things easier, the most intricate parts of the templates are pre-diecut. Then simply display your finished model and admire your handiwork.
Suitable for folding experts and beginners alike, Frank Lloyd Wright Paper Models is a must for Wright fans and architectural model enthusiasts. The models you will build are: Winslow House (1894), Unity Temple (1908), Robie House (1910), Hollyhock House (1921), Imperial Hotel (1922), Freeman House (1922), Storer House (1923), Millard House (1923), Ennis House (1924), Taliesin West (1937), Jacobs House (1937), Fallingwater (1939), Johnson Wax HQ (1939), Guggenheim Museum (1959).
