"This volume brings together for the first time all the papers Louis Sullivan intended for a public audience, from his first interview in 1882 to his last essay in 1924. Organized chronologically, these speeches, interviews, essays, letters to editors, and committee reports enable readers to trace Sullivan's development from a brash young assistant to Dankmar Adler to an architectural elder statesman. Robert Twombly, an authority on Sullivan's work and life, has introduced each document with a headnote explaining its significance, locating it in time and place, and examining its immediate context. He has also provided a general introduction that analyzes Sullivan's writing style and objectives, his major philosophical themes, and the sources of his ideas. With the help of headnotes and introduction, readers will get a thorough sense of Sullivan's concerns, discover how his ideas evolved and changed, and appreciate the circumstances under which new interests emerged."--Jacket
Frederick Law Olmsted : essential texts by Frederick Law Olmsted( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Often called the father of landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted was responsible for the design of Central Park and Prospect Park in NewYork City; Mount Royal Park in Montreal; the Belle Isle Park in Detroit; the Grand Necklace of Parks in Milwaukee; the Cherokee Park and entire parks system in Louisville, KY; and the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, to name a few of his most famous projects. His landscape works are enjoyed in 25 states and 3 Canadian provinces. Most of these parks were created during and immediately after the Civil War. This title presents the opportunity to witness the evolution of Olmstedrs's design and social philosophies during a time of upheaval in American history. Sixteen selections, dating from the 1850s to the 1890s, reveal Frederick Law Olmstedrs's youthful interests as well as his mature thinking on cities, small residential sites, the history and theory of urban parks, and landscape architecture in general. His writings directly addressed important issues of hisday, but they remain as cogent as ever in today's environmental crisis."--Pub. desc

"Throughout, he offers critiques of the buildings themselves - these reflections, as he sees it, of America's changing socioeconomic structure. This is an invaluable book on modern U.S. architecture, which demonstrates, in the finest tradition of cultural history, whom architecture serves, how, and for what reasons."--Jacket
