Title: Beth Sholom Synagogue, Frank Lloyd Wright and Modern Religious Architect (Hard Cover DJ) Published by The University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London)

Author: Siry, Joseph M.

Description: In a suburb just north of Philadelphia stands Beth Sholom Synagogue, Frank Lloyd Wright’s only synagogue and among his finest religious buildings. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007, Beth Sholom was one of Wright’s last completed projects, and for years it has been considered one of his greatest masterpieces... Beth Sholom Synagogue provides the first in-depth look at the synagogue’s conception and realization in relation to Wright’s other religious architecture. Beginning with his early career at Adler and Sullivan’s architectural firm in Chicago and his design for Unity Temple and ending with the larger works completed just before or soon after his death, Joseph M. Siry skillfully depicts Wright’s exploration of geometric forms and structural techniques in creating architecture for worshipping communities... Filled with over three hundred illustrations, this remarkable book takes us deep inside the synagogue’s design, construction, and reception to bring us an illuminating portrait of the crowning achievement of this important aspect of Wright’s career.

Title: Sacred Spaces. The Houses of Worship Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (Produced by The Real Shop Productions)

Author: The Real Shop Productions

Description: DVD. "Frank Lloyd Wright has long been regarded as America's greatest architect. Famous for such works as the Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater, Wright designed over 1,000 buildings during his 70-year career. Sacred Spaces examines his brilliant, but less well-known, houses of worship. Featuring the classical music that Wright most admired, this fascinating documentary showcases all ten religious structures that were created for a wide range of faiths. Wright's uniquely American designs were hugely influential in the field of engineering, and groundbreaking in the way they incorporated natural surroundings. Perhaps the greatest testament to Wright's impact is the fact that active congregations still use each of these structures today...." Original list price $29.95.
