Frank Lloyd Wright’s SC Johnson Research Tower

Frank Lloyd Wright’s SC Johnson Research Tower in Racine, Wisconsin, is one of modern architecture’s most significant landmarks. This 79-page book investigates the rise of this remarkable building. Author Mark Hertzberg explores the design and construction, and through interviews with Johnson employees, the experience of working within Wright’s iconic Tower.

A photo essay titled “The Tower Rises” chronicles the construction with historical photographs, and Hertzberg’s artful images document the Tower – inside and out – as it appears today. Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives, provides an insightful foreword.
