Frank Lloyd Wright's Architecture: A Computerized Energy Simulation Study

Anat Geva, an architect, received a special award in 1997 to study the question of how architects shape the design of buildings for energy performance. Dr. Geva’s research was to assess and compare the energy performance and comfort level of the Unity Temple (1904) and three single family houses in Oak Park, Illinois designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the same period.

In the Fall of 2011 Dr. Geva published Frank Lloyd Wright's Sacred Architecture: Faith, Form and Building Technology a comprehensive study of the sacred buildings built and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, representing different periods of Wright’s career (from 1886 to 1958), new building technologies, and application of his design concepts as demonstrated in his sacred architecture.
