The first major presentation in decades of the visionary drawings of the artist-architect and master designer. Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of vast and unprecedented vision, whose work is not only still admired by the critics and carefully studied by historians but is also widely beloved. Comfortable spaces, humanly scaled, with extraordinary attention to detail-as seen in a range of architectural forms-are at the center of Wrights enduring appeal. This vision and attention is nowhere more evident than in the drawings. It has been said that had Wright left us only drawings, and not his buildings as well, he would still be celebrated for his brilliant artistry, and this is borne out here. Even more significant, and shown here as never before, are the magical first moments of invention and inspiration-Wrights earliest sketches, some never before published-which offer unique insight into the mind of the master architect. Frank Lloyd Wright Designs is the most important and comprehensive book to be published on the drawings, designs, conceptual sketches, elevations, and plans of Wright, with particular emphasis on the development of certain important projects. It includes the best-known and beloved projects-like Fallingwater, The Coonley House, Midway Gardens, the Guggenheim, the Imperial Hotel-as well as a range of intriguing, unfamiliar, and previously unpublished drawings by Wright

This title deals with the Wright stuff. This is the definitive publication on America's greatest architect. Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is widely considered to be the greatest American architect of all time; indeed, his work virtually ushered in the modern era and remains highly influential today. His wide-ranging and paradigm-shifting oeuvre is the subject of Taschen's three-volume monograph that covers all of his designs (numbering approximately 1100), both realized and unrealized. Made in cooperation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, this collection leaves no stone unturned in examining and paying tribute to Wright's life and work. From his early Prairie Houses (typified by the Robie House) to the Usonian concept home and progressive 'living architecture' buildings to late projects like the spiral Guggenheim Museum in New York and the development of his fantastic vision of a better tomorrow via his concept of the 'living city', all of the phases of Wright's career are painstakingly described and illustrated herein. Volume 1 covers the early Chicago years and the Prairie Houses, the period which provoked a profound influence on European architects. Wright's architectural work during these early years was mostly residential, as it would be throughout his career, and from his earliest work, Frank Lloyd Wright demonstrated a knowledge of and respect for natural materials. In the ten years between 1896 and 1906, he developed and perfected the so-called 'prairie house'. Wright believed the architect should have complete charge of architectural design, and for him this meant interior furnishings as well as exterior landscape. The 1908 Avery Coonley residence, the administration building for the Larkin Soap Company (1903-1905), and the Unity Temple (1905) are examples of major works from the period
Frank Lloyd Wright : designs for an American landscape, 1922-1932 by Anne Whiston Spirn( Book )

During the 1920s, as the five remarkable projects in this book show, Frank Lloyd Wright developed architectural prototypes of far-reaching consequence. None of these schemes - Doheny Ranch, the Lake Tahoe summer colony, and the A.M. Johnson desert compound, all in California, the Gordon Strong automobile objective in Maryland, and San Marcos in the Desert, a compound of hotel and houses in Arizona - were built. But in them, Wright explored advanced building technologies and untried geometric patterns, and conceived rural and suburban building complexes that restructured their sites in a manner calculated to heighten the grandeur of each location. Earlier designs had approached their settings more tentatively, with linkages achieved through architectural extensions that ranged over the terrain but left the sites themselves less changed. Now a new, more persuasive unity between building and site resulted, one in which roads and other movement systems were so skillfully integrated that results of unequaled scale and majesty were achieved. Wright continued to develop these ideas in many subsequent works, notably Taliesin and Taliesin West, his homes in Wisconsin and Arizona. In preparing their texts for this book, authors David G. De Long and Anne Whiston Spirn drew on a wealth of fresh archival sources as well as their investigation of the sites and of models constructed especially for this study. Their essays are illustrated with nearly 170 original drawings for the five schemes and related buildings, as well as Taliesin and Taliesin West, many of which are published here for the first time. In addition, a special portfolio of drawings, assembled by C. Ford Peatross, places Wright's designs of the 1920s in the context of the architectural representation of the automobile and the roadway through 1930, both in the U.S. and abroad, to illustrate the ways in which his architecture stood apart and was influential. Completing this handsome volume is Robert L. Sweeney's valuable detailed chronology of Wright's life and work between 1922 and 1932
