Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater : the house and its history by Donald Hoffmann( Book )

23 editions published between 1977 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 1,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A total revision--both in text and illustrations--of the standard document on Fallingwater, the boldest, most personal architectural statement of Wright's mature years. Updated with valuable new material from the recently opened Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, the book gives special emphasis to Fallingwater's architectural innovations: cantilevered construction, ingenious integration with a majestic waterfall, use of reinforced concrete, and more. Over 100 photos depict the site, every phase of construction and the distinctive interior and exterior detailing. "Fascinating"--The New York Times
Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House : the illustrated story of an architectural masterpiece by Donald Hoffmann( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frank Lloyd Wright firmly believed that "life could be formed anew if new form could be brought to its setting, architecture." His revolt against customary architectural design was shared by rugged individualist Fred C. Robie, who chose Wright to build his dream house in 1908. In this painstakingly researched and illuminating account of the design and construction of the Robie home, a noted architectural authority presents an in-depth study remarkable for clarity and thoroughness ... Now students, architects, any lover of fine buildings can watch an architectural masterpiece take shape in this profusely illustrated history of the house Wright himself labeled "a source of world-wide architectural inspiration."--

Understanding Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture by Donald Hoffmann( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the vast literature about Frank Lloyd Wright, noted Wright scholar Donald Hoffmann contends that observations about Wright commonly fail to reach any understanding of his art and few commentaries deal with the principles of his architecture. What inspired his work? How did his architecture mature? What are the dynamics of its characteristic expression? Why will the formative principles always be valid?

Frank Lloyd Wright's house on Kentuck Knob by Donald Hoffmann( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kentuck, constructed on an isolated knoll, or knob, is now owned by Lord Palumbo of London and is open for public tours. This account tells the story of how the house came to be, detailing the many complexities faced by the Hagans - from the delights and difficulties in dealing with Wright to the problems with topography and architectural plans. In fulfilling Wright's vision, the Hagans and their contractor created a building of great beauty, dignity, and serenity. More than fifty photographs, drawings, and diagrams accompany a detailed descriptive text to illustrate how the peculiarities of the plan, based on the equilateral triangle, resulted in a house that generates countless vistas, indoors and out, and spatial effects of great charm and intimacy."--Jacket
