Title: Modern Architecture: The Architecture of Democracy (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Prentice-Hall International, London; George Braziller, New York)

Author: Scully, Vincent, Jr

Description: This book is in an attempt to define the historical dimensions of modern architecture and to evaluate its meaning in terms of modern life. Although it is not intended as a historical survey, it shows how the rise of the architecture of democracy is related to the roots and formulation of contemporary thought. Professor Scully traces the major developments which have taken place in modern architecture beginning with the democratic and industrial revolutions of the late eighteenth century and the subsequent breakdown of the old humanist, man centered world. From the Baroque synthesis of freedom and order evolved two diversified tendencies: one was what the author calls Romantic – Classicism, and the other was Romantic – Naturalism." (Dust jacket) Includes many references and photographs related to
Frank Lloyd Wright. Original list price $30.00. Photographs printed in photogravure. (First Edition)

Author: Scully, Vincent, Jr.

Description: "This revised edition of the important work published in 1961 offers and opportunity to focus on the major new developments in architecture in the last 20 years, and in the light of these events, to revise and enlarge the view of modern architectural history as a whole which the original text presented. Unlike the earlier addition, the revision devotes considerable attention to city planning. The author traces the major developments which have taken place in modern architecture beginning with the democratic and industrial revolutions of the late 18th century and the subsequent breakdown of the old humanist, man - centered world. From the Baroque synthesis of freedom and order evolved two diversified tendencies: one was what the author calls Romantic - Classicism, and the other was Romantic - Naturalism." (Back cover) This edition included an additional chapter, "Twelve Years After: The Age of Irony," as well as an additional 32 plates. Includes many references and photographs related to Frank Lloyd Wright. Unlike the first addition where the photographs were printed in photogravure, these are printed standard halftone.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright (Hard Cover) (Published by Birkhäuser Verlag GmbH, Basel, Switzerland. Originally published by Spon, London; New York, 1995)

Author: Treiber, Daniel

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) exercised a shaping influence on architectural history throughout the world as only very few other architects beside him have done. His structures – developed from landscape, program, material, and construction – are highly individual and independent of the stylistic developments of modern architecture. His constant attempts to invent new things gave rise to the idiosyncratic forms and constructions that are typical of his work. The author, Daniel Treiber, has produced a well-researched and thorough presentation that highlights the fundamental aspects of the American architect’s work that are relevant from a contemporary perspective. He systematically investigates the forms, types, and strategies of Wright’s oeuvre and accompanies his outstanding texts with a lavish offering of photographs and plans. (Publisher’s description.)

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright 1941-1959. A Selection of Buildings and Projects (A record of a seminar held at the Southern California Institute of Architecture from January to April 1988)

Description: "This book is a product of a seminar focusing n the projects and buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright designed between 1941 and 1959... to analyze for common motifs and themes, which the whole group tackled together; and fifteen specific subjects – the various building types Wright addressed in those prolific years, which we examined individually. The fifteen topics included Usonian Houses of modest or ore generous sizes and budgets, housing projects, hotels and apartments, resorts and motels, museums, megastructures, churches, commercial buildings, theatres and large scale complexes... As it turns out, we have concluded that the latter period beginning in 1938 is dominated by Wright’s interest in circular geometry which appears in more than two-thirds of the buildings studied..."

Author: Edit: Menocal, Narciso

Description: "In Wright Studies Volume Two: Fallingwater and Pittsburgh, contributors Kathryn Smith, Neil Levine, and Richard Cleary concentrate on two themes: Smith focuses on Wright’s interest in the imagery of water in architecture while Levine and Cleary look at Wright’s relationship with Edgar Kaufmann, the department store magnate, and analyze the results—aesthetic and otherwise—of that relationship. All three deal with Fallingwater, built for Kaufmann in the 1930s, and other projects planned for Pittsburgh, which included a planetarium, a civic center, a parking garage, and an apartment house. Smith discusses how Wright refined his integration of bodies of water into his designs over the course of his career, the most successful of which is Fallingwater. Levine provides historical background on Fallingwater and analyzes the architectural elements of the design while emphasizing Fallingwater’s temporal dimension. Cleary covers Wright’s Pittsburgh projects and Edgar Kaufmann Sr.’s role in them." (Publisher’s description.) Original SC List Price $35.00, HC List Price $50.00. (First Edition)

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Phaidon Press Limited, London)

Author: McCarter, Robert

Description: This book provides a comprehensive critical overview of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the great masters of modern architecture. Beautifully illustrated with a wealth of photographs of many of Wright's best known buildings, Frank Lloyd Wright explores the key themes in the architect's work, presenting the consistent and systematic qualities that underlie all of his designs. Robert McCarter's text analyses Wright's work chronologically, emphasizing key designs and work relating to that, in parallel to an examination of several predominant themes active in Wright's design work, and singled out by Wright as being of fundamental importance in his understanding of architecture. The themes of space and the spatial experience of the user are thus examined, alongside a discussion of construction and a coherent tectonic order, and a investigation of the relationship between Wright's architecture and the landscape.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Living Space (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by the Northern Illinois University Press, DeKalb, Illinois)

Author: Satler, Gail

Description: From the dust jacket: "The space within the building is the reality of that building." So says Frank Lloyd Wright in "The Destruction of the Box," an address in which he recalls for his audience the origins of his break with previous architectural thought. According to Satler, Wright's approach, "organic architecture, " reveals space as a lived and living entity, one that achieves its full meaning only when it becomes inscribed with the actual practices of those who inhabit it. This sociological analysis of Wright's architecture examines the interaction between people and the spaces they create. Satler shows how Wright explored a new architectural dimension, the space in which we live. Focusing on the Larkin Building (1904) and Unity Temple (1907), works that Wright considered important but that have received little attention, Satler delineates the social nature of space...

Growing up, working with Silsbee, his time with Adler & Sullivan, and an extensive, in-depth look at the 1893 Chicago World’s Columbian Exhibition. "It was only when I got to the photograph of the pavilion of Turkey where I started to believe that there may be a relationship between Frank Lloyd Wright and the founding father of modern architecture’s importance on the 1893 World‘s Columbian Exhibition. In Wrights’ autobiography, and almost every book written by Wright, there is at least one reference to the 1893 Chicago World‘s Columbian Exhibition (World’s Fair). It intuitively followed that Wright thought this fair was very important to him even if he didn’t like it..."

Description: Back Cover: "An unforgettable cultural icon who refined both the twentieth-century city-scape and America's suburban and rural landscape, Frank Lloyd Wright has been studied from what seems to have been every possible angle.

Title: The Urbanism of Frank Lloyd Wright (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Princeton University Press, New Jersey)

Author: Levine, Neil

Description: "This is the first book devoted to Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs for remaking the modern city. Stunningly comprehensive, The Urbanism of Frank Lloyd Wright presents a radically new interpretation of the architect’s work and offers new and important perspectives on the history of modernism. Neil Levine places Wright’s projects, produced over more than fifty years, within their historical, cultural, and physical contexts, while relating them to the theory and practice of urbanism as it evolved over the twentieth century. Levine overturns the conventional view of Wright as an architect who deplored the city and whose urban vision was limited to a utopian plan for a network of agrarian communities he called Broadacre City..."
