Usonia, New York : building a community with Frank Lloyd Wright by Roland Reisley( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Usonia, New York tells the story of a group of idealistic men and women who, following World War II, enlisted Frank Lloyd Wright to design and help them build a cooperative utopian community near Pleasantville, New York. Through both historic memorabilia and contemporary color photographs, this book reveals the still-thriving community founded on concepts in his Broadacre City proposals. Over the years, thousands of architects, scholars, planners, and students have visited the community, but no book has yet appeared on this remarkable story. Reisley, one of the early members of Usonia (and still a resident), has written the first full account to illuminate the events, problems, and passions of a democratic group of people creating a community with America's most famous - and most famously outspoken - architect." "Usonia, New York features Wright's famous drawings of the plan of Usonia; stories of Wright's designs for the Friedman (Toyhill), Serlin, Miller, and Auerbach houses; photos by Pedro Guerrero of Wright's early visits to the community; the author's recollections of building his own home with Wright; and an illustrated index of the forty-seven homes that make up Usonia."--Jacket
The architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright by Neil Levine( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although a founding figure of modern architecture as well as its most celebrated and prolific practitioner, Frank Lloyd Wright has always remained elusively outside the mainstream. In this book, the architectural historian Neil Levine redefines our understanding of Wright in the first comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the architect's entire career since the opening of the Wright Archives. Making use of the architect's drawings, notes, writings, and personal and professional correspondence, the author weaves together historical and biographical material in a carefully documented, chronologically ordered framework that gives new meaning and relevance to Wright's enormously varied production. The main theme of Wright's work is the intimate relation between architecture and nature, as revealed through the processes of abstraction and representation. The power of its hold on us lies in the various ways Wright developed this idea for the suburb, the city, and the country, for environments as different as the American Midwest or Southwest and Baghdad, and for programs ranging from the single-family house and the suburban church to the museum and the civic center. Levine conveys the significance of the continuities and changes that he sees in Wright's architecture and thought by adopting a case-study method that focuses successive chapters on the architect's most important designs. The origins of the revolutionary Prairie House are traced to the Winslow House, its full manifestation being seen in the later Robie House. Taliesin, the Imperial Hotel, Hollyhock House, the textile-block houses and projects, Fallingwater, and Taliesin West are each given special attention. Discussions of the Guggenheim Museum, the proposed Baghdad Opera House, and the Marin County Civic Center show how Wright's later work, contrary to received opinion, opened up important new areas of investigation into the language of architectural expression. Levine's analysis of the representational imagery and narrative structure of Wright's buildings situates the architect's work in the general context of modern thought and gives this book a unique place in the writings on Wright
