Frank Lloyd Wright : designs for an American landscape, 1922-1932 by Anne Whiston Spirn( Book )

24 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1920s, as the five remarkable projects in this book show, Frank Lloyd Wright developed architectural prototypes of far-reaching consequence. None of these schemes - Doheny Ranch, the Lake Tahoe summer colony, and the A.M. Johnson desert compound, all in California, the Gordon Strong automobile objective in Maryland, and San Marcos in the Desert, a compound of hotel and houses in Arizona - were built. But in them, Wright explored advanced building technologies and untried geometric patterns, and conceived rural and suburban building complexes that restructured their sites in a manner calculated to heighten the grandeur of each location. Earlier designs had approached their settings more tentatively, with linkages achieved through architectural extensions that ranged over the terrain but left the sites themselves less changed. Now a new, more persuasive unity between building and site resulted, one in which roads and other movement systems were so skillfully integrated that results of unequaled scale and majesty were achieved. Wright continued to develop these ideas in many subsequent works, notably Taliesin and Taliesin West, his homes in Wisconsin and Arizona. In preparing their texts for this book, authors David G. De Long and Anne Whiston Spirn drew on a wealth of fresh archival sources as well as their investigation of the sites and of models constructed especially for this study. Their essays are illustrated with nearly 170 original drawings for the five schemes and related buildings, as well as Taliesin and Taliesin West, many of which are published here for the first time. In addition, a special portfolio of drawings, assembled by C. Ford Peatross, places Wright's designs of the 1920s in the context of the architectural representation of the automobile and the roadway through 1930, both in the U.S. and abroad, to illustrate the ways in which his architecture stood apart and was influential. Completing this handsome volume is Robert L. Sweeney's valuable detailed chronology of Wright's life and work between 1922 and 1932

Auldbrass : Frank Lloyd Wright's southern plantation by David Gilson De Long( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Lloyd Wright designed over 1000 projects during his long and prolific career, but Auldbrass, in Yemassee, South Carolina, is the only plantation among them and one of the most complex projects he ever undertook. In 1986, film producer Joel Silver bought Auldbrass, and with the help of Eric Lloyd Wright the grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, he has meticulously restored this stunning architectural gem. Now, with the completed restoration and new photography, author and eminent architecture historian David G. De Long offers us the first opportunity to see one of Wright's greatest works, as the master himself originally envisioned it

Frank Lloyd Wright and the living city by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )

20 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is acknowledged as America's greatest architect. Near the end of his life, in 1958, Wright published The Living City, the final version of his vision of an ideal social order. Indeed, all of his buildings and projects can be seen, retrospectively, as prototypes and proposals, models for the new, decentralized pattern of living that he offered as a blueprint for the future and from which we have much to learn today."--Jacket
Eero Saarinen : buildings from the Balthazar Korab archive by Eero Saarinen( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through the eye of photographer Balthazar Korab, this book provides an insider's view of the buildings and working methods of Eero Saarinen. It joins iconic photographs of Modernist masterpieces in their prime with many rarely seen images of Saarinen's buildings and their design, construction, models, and details, enriched with intimate portraits of his professional colleagues, home, and family." "The photographs are grouped by project, and the projects are arranged in chronological order according to the date of the commission. Defining images for each building - often the famous and most published views - open the sections, accompanied by images of models and construction photographs (when they exist in the Korab archive), with exteriors, interiors, and, in some cases, related gardens and building additions, Related images of interest, as well as plans for the buildings, are reproduced in appendices."--Jacket

Louis I. Kahn : in the realm of architecture by David Bruce Brownlee( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This condensed edition of Louis I. Kahn: In the Realm of Architecture is a definitive and richly illustrated volume that presents the oeuvre of one of this century's most influential practitioners, teachers, and thinkers in architecture. Here is the detailed account of the architecture and philosophy of Louis Kahn, whose buildings have become the very signature of the modernist aesthetic and whose vision permanently changed the direction of American architecture. Kahn's career is documented here with meticulous attention to all aspects of his work-- from his own fascinating biography to the unique philosophy that underlies his buildings to the structures themselves. The stunning range of Kahn's architectural vision becomes fully apparent: his structures are at once solemn and resonant, elemental and musical. Extraordinary, exclusively commissioned color photographs of his masterworks-- the Yale Center for British Art, the National Assembly complex at Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Indian Institute of Management, the Salk Institute-- exquisitely demonstrate how Kahn's architecture wholly reinvents space and light. In all, more than two hundred illustrations, including numerous drawings and floor plans, accompany the painstakingly researched text. This volume-- published in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and with the exclusive participation of the Louis I. Kahn Collection-- contains six principal essays that critically address different dimensions and periods of Kahn's architecture. The essays and photography are accompanied by succinct notes and captions, as well as a complete list of buildings and projects and an index, making this book the preeminent scholarly and illustrative source for Kahn's architecture
Sunnylands : art and architecture of the Annenberg estate in Rancho Mirage, California( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Located near Palm Springs, California, Sunnylands was built in the early 1960s by philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. Envisioned by architect A. Quincy Jones and the interior design team of William Haines and Ted Graber, the estate has come to be regarded as an icon of midcentury modernism. The grounds include twelve man-made lakes and a golf course set against the majestic backdrop of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains. Housed within the estate are exceptional collections{u2014}modern sculpture, paintings and works on paper, the Steuben Glass collection, decorative arts, Chinese art, and one-of-a-kind Mayan and Hindu objects{u2014}framed by furnishings in a style known as Hollywood Regency. Sunnylands became known as a gathering place for American presidents, British royalty, artists, writers, actors, and others. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his wife, Mamie, often joined the Annenbergs at Sunnylands. President Nixon used the estate to work on his State of the Union Message in 1974, and nearly every U.S. president since has paid a visit. This book tells the story of this home{u2014}how it came to be commissioned, details of its design and construction, acquisition of the extensive collections of art and objects, and changes over the years
