Modern architecture; being the Kahn lectures for 1930 by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )

3 editions published between 1931 and 2008 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern Architecture is a landmark text - the first book in which America's greatest architect put forth the principles of a fundamentally new, organic architecture that would reject the trappings of historical styles while avoiding the geometric abstraction of the machine aesthetic advocated by contemporary European modernists. One of the most important documents in the development of modern architecture and the career of Frank Lloyd Wright, Modern Architecture is a provocative and profound polemic against America's architectural eclecticism, commercial skyscrapers, and misguided urban planning. This book is also a work of savvy self-promotion, in which Wright not only advanced his own concept of an organic architecture but also framed it as having anticipated by decades - and bettered - what he saw as the reductive modernism of his European counterparts.Based on the 1931 original, for which Wright supplied the cover illustration, this beautiful edition includes a new introduction that puts 'Modern Architecture' in its broader architectural, historical, and intellectual context for the first time. The subjects of these lively lectures - from 'Machinery, Materials and Men' to 'The Tyranny of the Skyscraper' and 'The City' - move from a general statement of the conditions of modern culture to particular applications in the fields of architecture and urbanism at ever broadening scales. Wright's vision in Modern Architecture is ultimately to equate the truly modern with romanticism, imagination, beauty, and nature - all of which he connects with an underlying sense of American democratic freedom and individualism

Magnificent buildings, splendid gardens by David R Coffin( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Magnificent Buildings, Splendid Gardens returns to print some of the most important works of David Coffin, a leading authority on Renaissance architecture who, as one of the first scholars to apply the tools of art history to the study of gardens, became a founder of the discipline of garden and landscape studies. These essays span the wide range of Coffin's work, from Italian Renaissance architecture, garden design, sculpture, and drawings to English gardens and landscape designers of the seventeenth to early nineteenth centuries. Coffin's approaches are as varied as his subject matter. Some of these essays present the results of his archival research, including his discovery of crucial documents on the Emilian architect Giovan Battista Aleotti and the only documentary evidence identifying Vignola as the architect of the Villa Lante at Bagnaia. Other essays take a much broader cultural view, investigating, for example, the phenomenon of public access to private Renaissance gardens, elucidating the evolving meaning of images of the goddess Venus in English gardens, and identifying the significance of the decorative programs of monuments as diverse as the Villa Belvedere in Rome and the eighteenth-century gardens at Rousham in Oxfordshire."--Publisher's description
