Frank Lloyd Wright and Midway Gardens by Paul Kruty ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Built in Chicago in 1914, Frank Lloyd Wright's Midway Gardens was a concert garden that included an indoor restaurant and dance hall, a five-tiered, outdoor summer garden with band shell, a tavern, and a private club - a work of art on the grandest scale uniting all the arts in an architecture of pleasure. In this illustrated volume, the first to focus solely on Midway Gardens, Paul Kruty traces the project's history and argues that its complex design and extensive use of decoration were the first unmistakable examples of a change in style and approach that was to characterize Wright's work for the next fifteen years

Wood bungalows and burnt-clay cottages : building a model brick house at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition by Paul Kruty ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In 1913 a group of Midwest brick manufacturers began a daunting but ultimately successful effort to create a model brick house for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915. The struggle reflects the challenges confronting the brick industry in the face of fierce competition from the established but innovative lumber interests and the emerging but equally competitive concrete business. It also provides a glimpse into the problems facing many of the entrenched elements of the construction industry struggling to adjust to changing markets and marketing strategies in the years just before and after World War I. Finally, because the venue of this particular skirmish was the West Coast, while the activists hailed from the Midwest and included several of Chicago's most progressive architects, the ensuing conflicts also reveals something about the rivalry between adherents of the California frame bungalow and promoters of the Prairie School brick house
The Spatialization of Knowledge and Power at the Astronomical Observatories of Sawai Jai Singh II, c. 1721-1743 CE by Susan N Johnson-Roehr ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation is about the production of astronomical knowledge in northern India during the eighteenth century and the specific architectural elements and landscape configurations that affected the mobility and utility of that knowledge. Centered on a group of five astronomical observatories built between 1721 and 1743 CE under the patronage of the Maharaja Dhiraja of Jaipur and Amer, Sawai Jai Singh II, this project is an analysis of the relationship between patron, architecture, and space, and as such, represents an alternative history of observatories, one that is underpinned by motion, exchange, adaptation, and creativity. My project embraces the spatial and the material, and argues that architecture and landscape are not simply witnesses to history but participants in the process of change and transformation. This project argues that our understanding of the spatial and intellectual relationships among the observatories has been shaped by colonial historiography and calls for a reading of the historical landscape that recognizes both the power and the limitations of the agency of the local patron and populace. In this study, I demonstrate that the observatory outside the walls of Shahjahanabad functioned as the primary site for scientific production for several years before Sawai Jai Singh directed his attentions toward the observatory in Jaipur c. 1728 CE. A close reading of the plan and architecture of Jaipur reveals the multiple types of knowledge that were emplaced in the local landscape as a result of the construction of the observatory and shows that while the ostensible goal of the observatory was the production of astronomical knowledge, ancillary knowledge⁰́₄accounting, building, political⁰́₄was privileged in the intellectual institutions of the city. My analysis of the relationship between these institutions and the greater urban fabric disentangles the complexity of labor divisions at the observatory and highlights Sawai Jai Singh⁰́₉s desire to consolidate his intellectual wealth into a single locale⁰́₄the scholar⁰́₉s village of Bhramapurī⁰́₄at the periphery of the capital. This discussion also considers the stretch and limitations of Sawai Jai Singh⁰́₉s power and reputation. Sawai Jai Singh made three separate attempts to re-settle European experts close to his most active observatory. In doing so, he appropriated the infrastructure of the Society of Jesus and used it to circumvent the hardships impressed upon travelers by the north Indian landscape in order to bring representatives of European science back to his capital city. However, in spite of the strength of his political and economic position in northern India, the natural landscape and the particularities of the Jesuit rule combined to thwart him in these endeavors. This project concludes with a consideration of the dominant themes in contemporary heritage discourse, demonstrating that as the observatories were vacated of historical references, they were assigned new and often contradictory meaning by local and global stakeholders. By turning away from the conventional archive, and examining instead the built environment of northern India during the first half of the eighteenth century, the observatories are revealed to be dynamic components of a cultural landscape thoroughly saturated with motion, productivity, and change

The Midwestern brewery before prohibition : development of an American industrial building type by Susan Kay Bigley Appel ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis is a study of the architectural development of the pre-Prohibition American brewery as represented especially in the midwestern cities of Cincinnati and St. Louis. It investigates the brewery as a distinctive type of post-Civil War industrial building, analyzing its characteristic features and considering the circumstances under which it became a common architectural feature in America until national Prohibition. By focusing on Cincinnati and St. Louis, the thesis stresses the importance of those cities and the Midwest to the brewery's development. It also uses those cities' breweries as a representative group of buildings that effectively demonstrate the type's evolution in the United States at large, from its vernacular phase before the Civil War through its professionalization after. Among the factors identified as fundamental to the changing architectural form of the brewery is the adoption in America of German, in place of English, methods of brewing. Interrelationships between German and American brewery designs are discussed, along with their possible meanings, as are the overlapping influences of technological and scientific developments and sheer economic success that helped produce the special forms characteristic of the post-Civil-War American brewery. In exploring the emergence of brewery design as a professional specialization, the study brings to light a neglected group of architects and engineers, often German-born midwesterners, whose works strongly influenced the direction in which breweries developed nationwide. A brief consideration of post-Prohibition brewing developments explains the legitimacy of limiting the study to pre-Prohibition breweries and underscores the special blend of practicality and beauty that made the brewery an important element of the American industrial scene between the 1860s and the 1910s
