It is a unique building. Nicely captured.

I'm not as familiar with Wright's commercial buildings as with his houses.

While Wright may have called Price Tower "the tree that escaped the forest", Bruce Goff referred to it as "a needle on the prairie." Some believe that Price tower took it's inspiration from Wright's Mile High Building, "The Illinois". The mile high project was a Wright concept that he hoped to build in Chicago.
