"This book presents twenty-five of the most renowned and significant buildings of America's premier architect, from his early Prairie work in Oak Park, Illinois, in the 1890s to his daring creations of the 1940s and 1950s." "Published in association with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, this superbly illustrated volume features previously unpublished photographs for which renowned architectural photographers Michael Freeman and Paul Rocheleau gained unprecedented access to some of Wright's masterworks. The book examines in unsurpassed detail a selection of Wright's architecture that covers the phenomenal range of his work, including such internationally famous buildings as the Home and Studio in Oak Park, Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, as well as several lesser-known residences such as the Auldbrass Plantation in South Carolina and the Kenneth Laurent house in Rockford, Illinois." "The works featured here are succinctly documented by one of Wright's former apprentices, with text that details the development and execution of each commission. Also included throughout is a selection of Wright's extensive writings, unpublished talks, and private letters."--BOOK JACKET

Frank Lloyd Wright : the heroic years, 1920-1932 by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer ( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Frank Lloyd Wright's wife, Olgivanna, famously said of her husband, that he "seemed to thrive on hardships." From the years 1920 to 1932 Wright's fortunes were at a low ebb; he was plagued by financial, personal, and professional setbacks, but saw the time as one of challenges instead of one of defeat. Unable to actually build much, his imagination led him to visionary, often quite splendid, conceptions of what architecture could be, laying the groundwork for much of the revolutionary architecture he would build in the decades to follow. During this period he designed almost fifty projects, of which only a few were built, but those few are seen today as among his most important creations. They include the majestic Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, the four exquisite textured concrete block houses as well as the elegant hilltop Hollyhock House in Los Angeles, renovations and additions to his beloved home, Taliesin, in Wisconsin, the Octillo Desert Camp in Chandler, Arizona, and his work as design consultant For the lavish Arizona Biltmore Hotel and Cottages in the desert in Phoenix. Rare and unseen photos as well as little know drawings from this period are on lavish display in this important work on the master architect."--Jacket

Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford : thirty years of correspondence by Frank Lloyd Wright ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A fallout over isolationist politics in the early 1940s led to a 10-year gap in their exchange, and when it resumed, the two were on an entirely different footing: Wright, the elder dean of American architecture at the height of his creative powers, and Mumford, an established critic in late middle age deeply committed to rebuilding a humanist outlook in the aftermath of World War II." "Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford offers an intimate look inside the minds and hearts of these two cultural giants, deepening our understanding of the men and the society they helped shape."--BOOK JACKET

Frank Lloyd Wright designs : the sketches, plans and drawings by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer ( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first major presentation in decades of the visionary drawings of the artist-architect and master designer. Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of vast and unprecedented vision, whose work is not only still admired by the critics and carefully studied by historians but is also widely beloved. Comfortable spaces, humanly scaled, with extraordinary attention to detail-as seen in a range of architectural forms-are at the center of Wrights enduring appeal. This vision and attention is nowhere more evident than in the drawings. It has been said that had Wright left us only drawings, and not his buildings as well, he would still be celebrated for his brilliant artistry, and this is borne out here. Even more significant, and shown here as never before, are the magical first moments of invention and inspiration-Wrights earliest sketches, some never before published-which offer unique insight into the mind of the master architect. Frank Lloyd Wright Designs is the most important and comprehensive book to be published on the drawings, designs, conceptual sketches, elevations, and plans of Wright, with particular emphasis on the development of certain important projects. It includes the best-known and beloved projects-like Fallingwater, The Coonley House, Midway Gardens, the Guggenheim, the Imperial Hotel-as well as a range of intriguing, unfamiliar, and previously unpublished drawings by Wright
