Marion Mahony and Millikin Place - Paperback Book
This book tells the tall of the creation of a private street in central Illinois. It does so in a variety of way: by examining the history of the site, the record of its design and construction, and the lives of the owners and architects who made it possible. This narrative--the development of a district on the west side of Decatur and its ramifications for the architectural world well beyond its borders--brings together three of the greatest modern architects practicing in early 20th century Chicago: Frank Lloyd Wright, Marion Lucy Mahony, and Walter Burley Griffin. Nearly every page contains factual material never before published, while much of the rest is to be found only in a wide range of obscure source. Here for the first time a complete account of Millikin Place and its legacy are available in a single volume.
