Description: Book Review: "Modern Architecture, Being the Kahn Lectures for 1930", Wright, 1931, 115 pages, illustrated boards, $4.00, The Princeton University Press, Princeton , NJ. "Frank Lloyd Wright has had so many commentators recently, both competent and incompetent, that it is a pleasure to read what the man actually thinks himself. Having been ‘taken up’ by the young intelligentsia, his views have often been distorted by clever phraseology into theories which he himself would scarcely recognize... Regardless of the attitude which one holds in regard to Mr. Wright, the book will be found interesting by anyone who is all concerned with the development of architecture in this country."

Perhaps something gets to me like the sensations of the woman who longed for a child and, one day, found one gratuitously laid on her doorstep, only to discover the child to be a doll. In this instance, the hoax goes so far as to forge in this foundling on the doorstep a resemblance to myself. Let’s look at the doll..."

Title: Architectural Forum - January 1938 (Two Page Letter) (Published Monthly by Time, Inc. New York)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description:  Two Page Letter from Frank Lloyd Wright loosely inserted into the magazine. "To the Young Man in Architecture – a Challenge: I have taken over the writing and editing of the January Architectural Forum. I turned editor partly because Howard Myers came to Taliesin and asked me to – partly because I felt the time had come to restate a few fundamentals which are strangely missing from the contemporary scene. The days and nights and the long hours I have put into the making of this issue are important only to me. But important to you are the months and years that went into the making of these buildings whose plans and photographs this issue brings you for the first time with critical text... My purpose and hope in presenting this material in the Architectural Forum is to promote discussion and rekindle enthusiasm for an honest American Architecture..." Two single sheets, printed in three color and embossed. Text in black, red square, signature printed in blue. Of interest is that the cover of the magazine is printed in two color. The first and last pages of the Wright section of the magazine is also printed in two color. The pages of Wright’s section is one color. But this letter is printed in three color and embossed.

Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect: House for $5,000-6,000 Income. For the family in the $5,000-$6,000 income group, Life chose the Blackbourns of Minneapolis. "We call the style Usonian meaning 'of these United States'. If the house seems a little open for your Northwest, that openness has been taken care of by building the house upon a paved concrete mat itself heated by steam pipes laid under it in the gravel filling beneath. This insures comfort no matter how cold outside and there are no radiators in sight. What looks like them in the drawings are really the folding screens between the several paces opening into the central or general space -- a kind of enclosed patio..."  Includes one model of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed home and five illustrations.

At home in the flat plains of the Middle-West, the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright has markedly failed to stir the imagination of the big investors responsible for New York’s swank avenues. But if the East has been indifferent to Wright, Wright has been indifferent to what he calls the ‘architectural fashion-mongers’, who have littered New York with a collection of ‘architectural fry bones bleaching in the sun.’ Last month the Guggenheim Foundation, responsible for giving New York a bowing acquaintance with such non-objective painters as Ladislas Kaninsky and Rudolf Bauer, said it was planning to introduce Frank Lloyd Wright to Manhattan..."

Description: "FLLW’s Dallas theater. Deep-shadowed and many faceted walls contain a revolution in stagecraft and define a new relationship between the audience and the performing art. When a delegation visited Frank Lloyd Wright in 1955 and commissioned him to design the Dallas Theater Center, they had few assets except their own enthusiasm, a rocky 1 ½ -acre site on Turtle creek, and the service of a director, Paul Baker... Fundamental to Wright’s scheme was the notion that theater should be "in the round." (He may even have coined that phrase.) But as the Dallas building took form, it was obvious that Wright did not intend a room where performers were merely surrounded by an audience..." Includes 10 photographs and three illustrations.

Description: Imperial Hotel. "Requiem for a Masterpiece. On February 28, 1968, the last of the magnificently carved Oya stones of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel in Tokyo was bulldozed into rubble to make way for the new order; a 17-story skyscraper hotel that will look like all other 17-story skyscraper hotels, everywhere... Wright had sunk so much of himself into his building that he had lost all perspective. He refused to delegate the smallest decision, or to curb the pettiness and jealousy which consumed his staff. As a result the hotel opened one year behind schedule at a cost triple its original estimate – a total of 4 3/4 million, an unprecedented sum in those days for a 280 room hotel."

Here he begins the frequent references to the arts and crafts publications and homemaker’s journals which carried the Prairie School message to the public... Brooks has written the book which demonstrates what Wright was talking about. It is not the last word. It is a definitive work which will stimulate those who read it to even more extensive examination of the roots of modern architecture."  (Sweeney 1871) Description:  News: "First Prairie House. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park home and studio are for sale. The 25-room complex (including seven bedrooms and seven baths) was, of course, the locus of Wright’s first ‘golden age,’ as Grant Manson described the Prairie House period. Over the past 25 years, much restoration work has been done (some of it supervised by Wright himself during the 1950's).
