The prairie school; Frank Lloyd Wright and his midwest contemporaries by H. Allen Brooks( Book )

40 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most original and dynamic developments in American architecture, the Prairie School was a regional manifestation of the international revolt and reform that occurred in the visual arts during the early years of the twentieth century. Inspired by Louis Sullivan and given guidance and prominence by Frank Lloyd Wright, the members of the movement sought to achieve a fresh architectural expression. Their designs were characterized by precise, angular forms and highly sophisticated interior arrangements--an approach that proved immensely significant in residential architecture. In this book, the author discusses the entire phenomenon of the Prairie School, not just the masters but also the work of their contemporaries. Drawing on unpublished material and original documentation as well as on interviews, he assesses each architect's contribution and traces the course of the movement itself--how and why it came into existence, what it achieved, and what caused its abrupt end

Le Corbusier's Formative Years examines, drawing on precise data, every aspect of Le Corbusier's education from preschool through his training as a designer of ornamental watch cases and his early studies in decoration and architectural design. As a young man he traveled extensively, studying in Paris and Berlin before returning home to La Chaux-de-Fonds to teach and practice architecture, interior decoration, and furniture design. Finally, in 1917, he moved to Paris, where, after several unsuccessful years as an entrepreneur, he turned his talents to writing, painting, architecture, and urban design
