Frank Lloyd Wright and Midway Gardens by Paul Kruty( Book )

11 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 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
Walter Burley Griffin in America by Walter Burley Griffin( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most original architects the United States has produced, Walter Burley Griffin worked in the shadow of his early colleague and employer, Frank Lloyd Wright. This has obscured Griffin's contributing role in Wright's architecture as well as the superb accomplishments of his own work as architect, landscape architect, and town planner." "A Chicago area native and a graduate of the University of Illinois, Griffin worked for five years as Wright's chief associate, then established his own practice in 1906. His personal style emphasized harmony between buildings and their surroundings and featured strong, elemental shapes, the experimental use of new materials, and simple, open floor plans. In 1912 Griffin won an international competition with his design for the proposed new Australian capital city of Canberra. His subsequent travels to oversee development of that design eventually led to Griffin's decision to settle permanently in Australia." "Walter Burley Griffin in America combines the richly detailed photographs of Mati Maldre and extensive research of Paul Kruty to provide the first complete visual record ever published of Griffin's surviving American work."--BOOK JACKET

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

Citizenship by design : art and identity in the early Republic by Julia A Sienkewicz( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation offers a study of the ways in which some artists active in the United States between 1790 and 1850 theorized that their work could participate in the process of creating and shaping the nation's citizens. Through the detailed analysis of four artists--Benjamin Henry Latrobe (1764-1820), Charles Willson Peale (1741-1827), Thomas Cole (1801-1848), and Horatio Greenough (1805-1852)--this project explores a process of citizenship by design theorized by these artists, a process which grew out of their belief that the physical environment could directly shape the character of its inhabitants. Buildings, landscapes, paintings, and sculptures were, for these artists, the means by which the moral and social precepts of democracy could be communicated most effectively to the public. Building on a long tradition of European aesthetic theory, these artists believed that through the process of perception such material objects could influence the mind and character of viewers. In short, I argue that by creating paintings, sculptures, landscapes and buildings, these artists believed that they were also crafting citizens.
