Irving Gill and the architecture of reform : a study in modernist architectural culture by Thomas S Hines( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hines also explores the social dimensions of Gill's work. His interest in the contemporary Progressive Movement, particularly its ethos of social, economic, and gender equality, was the wellspring for a series of projects for middle- and lower-income residents as well as for an intense concern with the functionality and convenience of his domestic designs." "Illustrated throughout with black-and-white archival photographs and featuring twelve pages of full-color plates, Irving Gill and the Architecture of Reform presents a comprehensive analysis of the oeuvre of a "rediscovered" modern master."--Jacket

On Frank Lloyd Wright's concrete adobe : Irving Gill, Rudolph Schindler and the American Southwest by Donald Leslie Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the period of 1919-1925, Frank Lloyd Wright worked on five houses and a kindergarten in the metropolitan Los Angeles area using concrete blocks as the main building material. These have variously been described as being 'uniquely molded', 'woven like textile fabric' and it was perceived as a groundbreaking, modern or unprecedented construction process. There were moments when Frank Lloyd Wright himself claimed to have invented this system. Many have attempted to uphold his claim, while others said he borrowed from ancient buildings. For the first time, this book brings together Wright's declarations, the assertive support by others and the accuracy of inferences in order to determine the correctness of these claims. It tests their veracity including the possibility of feigned, imagined or made-up stories presented as proof. It examines technical developments for concrete blocks, both by Wright and others, before his experiences in Los Angeles began in 1919. It also analyses the manner of Wright's design process, as well as relevant pictorial and textual documents and a study of those extant buildings. The book provides a unique, in-depth and critical analysis of Wright's concrete block houses, set within their historical, biographical and theoretical contexts. In particular, it shows the full impact upon Wright of his contemporaries, architects Irving Gill and Rudolph Schindler. In doing so, it allows a full appreciation of Wright's, Gill's and Schindler's buildings beyond their architectonic and experiential qualities
