Title: AA Files - January 1983 - (Annals of the Architectural Association School of Architecture. Published by The Architectural Association, London)

Author: Levine, Neil

Description: "Landscape into Architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House and the Romance of Southern California. Few private houses in the twentieth century have been designed with such monumental purpose as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House. Fewer still have been invested with the degree of symbolic expression normally reserved for buildings of a more public nature. Once dismissed as turgid, decorative, and imitative, it now may be seen in the light of post-modernism’s rejection of the reductive machine aesthetic as one of Wright’s most significant works and one of modern architecture’s most splendid achievements..." Includes 21 photographs and illustrations of Hollyhock House and other Wright projects.

Author: Smith, Kathryn

Description: Book Review: "The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright" Levine, 1996, £59.50. "Frank Lloyd Wright towers above all other architects of the twentieth century in popularity, yet he has never found a secure place in academia. Wright remains inscrutable too many professors of architecture and is ignored or ridiculed in the classrooms of the most prestigious universities. Since the beginning of the latest Wright revival, which gained momentum with the publication between 1984 and 1988 of twelve volumes of drawings, photographs and commentary compiled by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer and Yukio Futagawa, there have been several attempts to understand Wrights design process in order to teach his principles to architectural students. Although Wright was a prolific author, his numerous books are devoted almost exclusively to his life or to his opinions. His unforgettable autobiography, which reads like a melodrama - especially his account of the murder of his mistress in the two separate fires which burned his house to the ground - was first published in 1932 and it's been reprinted several times since... With Neil Levin’s book, it is inevitable that theory and content will play an increasingly greater role in Wright studies and, to the extent that they do, research and analysis involving Asian culture will only enhance our understanding."

Title: The American Architect - December 1930 (Published monthly by International Publications, Inc., New York)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: "Architecture as a profession is All Wrong. I have no sympathy whatever with the view entertained by certain facetious young men in architecture - that the A. I. A. is made up of old gentlemen who catch cold easily... The A. I. A., of course, is the soul of the profession... Unless what I have just seen with my own eyes, among the young men at Princeton, belies the future, the coming generation of architects are the psychological shock-troops to be thrown against the flabby ‘make-believe’ that has obscured the real issue for us here in America, or the young men themselves will ‘cut through...’ " Includes one portrait of Wright.

Author: Ford, G. B.

Description: "A Great Exhibition. We have seen the announcement in the papers of an architectural exhibition at Pittsburgh; we may have heard someone speak about it; we have, perhaps, been fortunate enough to see the catalogue... Whether it be in the charmingly imaginative and decorative treatment used by the father of this modern movement. Louis H. Sullivan, or in the most decorative. somewhat Japanese handling of F. L. Wright, or in the severer work along similar lines of Dean & Dean... It is unfortunate that Louis H. Sullivan is represented by only one exhibit, a plaster model of a beautiful capital, but that alone is sufficient to show his wonderful creative force and mastery of detail. We could not in any exhibition pass by the most decorative presentations of Frank Lloyd Wright without stopping to study them, with their happy contrasts of big wall surfaces and well-placed and pros portioned voids and ornament. How well the house nestles into its setting of gardens, lawns, trees and shrubs. How the hanging vines from window boxes add the one note of color necessary to break the monotony of the big surfaces and tie them into their setting. What a home-like and cozy feeling is evolved by the use of big simple roofs, as in the house for F. W. Little at Peoria, or by the happy grouping of broad horizontal lines as in the house for Mr. Coonley at Riverside, Ill., or that for Mr. Show at Montreal, Canada, or by the exceptionally artistic grouping of windows in the house for Mr. Hardy at Racine, Wis. Yes, among these twelve drawings there is a predominant sentiment of hominess, of livableness..." (Digital copy of magazine.

ARCHITECT AND ENGINEER
   
Date: 1916

Title: The Architect and Engineer of California - November 1916 (Digital) (Published monthly by The Architect and Engineer of California)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: The text of a speech given in Chicago in 1916: "The American System of House Building. Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright, famous Eastern architect, recently talked before a body of Chicago business men concerning his American System  of House Building. This system is being handled in a commercial way by the Richards Company of Milwaukee, but the directing genius back of the plan itself and the designer of all the houses is Mr. Wright. In his talk before the Chicago business men. Mr. Wright said : "I hesitated a long time before I decided that I would undertake a thing of this nature. It is something I have always believed could be done here in America better than anywhere else in the world. In all of my work from the beginning, I have had faith in the machine as the characteristic tool of my times, therefore an artist's tool. I have believed that this tool put into an artist's hand could be a real benefit to our civilization. I believe that the architecture in America that fails to take into account the machine and modern organization tendencies is going to be of no great benefit to the people. Of course, I know that it is going to take a more subtle art within more severe limitation to build houses beautifully while utilizing the machine. But I believe this effort is the logical conclusion of my studies and my architectural practice... Simply selling houses at less cost means nothing at all to me. To sell beautiful houses at less cost means everything. A beautiful house means a finer, better house in every way." Original cover price 25c.

No electricity was available in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park when Frank Lloyd Wright built his first home there in 1889 - but he knew it was only a matter of time. The newlywed Wright, who was only 22, worked as chief draftsman at the architectural office of Adler and Sullivan. The firm was just finishing the Auditorium Building, one of the first large structures in the united states to be completely electrified at the time of construction, so Wright had firsthand knowledge of electrical service in building. He wired his new house and waited for the power, which arrived in 1891. Discusses Wright’s use of lighting in his home and studio, and restoration. Includes 17 photographs.

It is difficult and open to challenge to try to define, in the usual way, a set of ‘influences’ that may have affected the career of so pioneer a genius as Frank Lloyd Wright. But he is an alert and sensitive human being, and it would be a mistake to think, no matter how beguiling it may be, that his art sprang whole from a certain complex of inheritances at a fixed moment in time. Other than the nebulous and over publicized inspiration that he drew from Louis Sullivan, the ‘Lieber Meister,’ he has of course undergone experiences in his life that have marked his work..."

Title: Architecture New Jersey - January/February/March 1977 (Published by the Mew Jersey Society of Architects, East Orange, N.J.)

Author: Grant, Philip S. Jr.

Description: "The Christie House. Reassessing of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Design. In a region full of reminders of the American Revolution stands a reminder of another revolution of a very different sort. It is the Christie House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, tucked away among the trees of Jockey Hollow Road in Bernardsville, New Jersey. Built in 1941 for a young couple with two children, it was purchased in 1949 by Sultan and Anita Amerie, who have lived there since... The Christie house is the epitome of these homes, offering life in touch with its surroundings at a degree too often unattainable today. Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural genius is well-established and his spectacular work spear this out. But perhaps more significant to us all in the long run is the simplicity and beauty captured in this Usonian design." Includes four photographs and one illustration.

Description: Roots of California Contemporary Architecture. From an exhibition of the 1900 to 1935 work of Irving Gil, Green and Green, Bernard Maybeck, Richard Neutra, R. M. Schindler and Frank Lloyd Wright, sponsored by the Los Angeles City Art Department and Arranged by the Architectural Panel. The shape of architecture in California has been largely determined by several men, whose work in the first thirty years of this century is brought together by the architectural panel and exhibited under the auspice is of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Department. These pioneers of contemporary architecture are Bernard R. Maybeck of the Bay Area, William Summer Greene and Henry Mather Greene of Pasadena, Irving J. Gill of San Diego, R. M. Schindler and Richard J Neutra of Los Angeles, and Frank Lloyd Wright... Wright’s four concrete block houses were built in the twenties, following his Imperial Hotel. In Japan, Wright made use of a common material for the hotel, a lava underfoot that "yielded to any sense of form the architect might choose to indicate." In California he rescued concrete block from factory construction and turned it into a noble building material. The plastic properties of concrete made it "susceptible to the imprint of the imagination," he said... Includes two photographs of the Ennis House and one photograph of the Freeman House. Photographs by Marvin Rand and Julius Shulman. Original cover price 50c.

Description: "Brick and Terra-Cotta Work In American Cities, and Manufacturers’ Department." Chicago... The erection of a novel building will soon be begun by the congregation of All Souls Unitarian Church, whose pastor is the Rev. Jenkin Lloyd Jones. All precedents have been ignored, and a building has been designed to meet in the simplest, quietest, and most natural way the peculiar conditions imposed upon the architects. These required, besides a large auditorium with the usual accessories, a gymnasium, baths, etc., a store, and a free reading room on the ground floor in front of the auditorium, a suite of rooms for the Unity Club, a suite of living apartments for Mr. Jones, and four floors of offices and chambers, with a Masonic hall and its accessories covering the entire eighth floor. The exterior walls, which are isolated from other buildings on all sides, will be of solid brick construction, and the general scheme is dignified and plain, almost to severity, depending chiefly for its effectivness upon largeness and coherence of composition and refinement of the very sparing detail. The auditorium will be barrel vaulted and richly treated in brick, mosaic, and plaster in Mr. Wright's original way, which is a restrained and agreeably geometrified phase of " Sullivanesque." Frank Lloyd Wright and Dwight Heald Perkins are the associated architects. (Bound within a volume.) Original cover price 25c.

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: "The ‘Village Bank’ Series. V. While there is probably little romance about a bank, - less poetry in the bray of Sancho Panza's substantial, positive gray donkey than in the sound of Rosinante's spirited neighing, - yet the community likes to feel that this same bank is there to stay. It is, in fact, the town strong box. and it is a temple to the God of Money, as modern temples go. In its temples, though they perform the function of modern mercantile machines, the community would find the lack of some attempt at ideal enrichment intolerably offensive. Just what this ingrained human love of ornament is, is not clear — not yet. Though this love is more indiscriminate than ever, more easily satisfied with meretricious gewgaws and meaningless signs and symbols, we may be thankful that..." Includes three illustrations of a Village Bank: Ground Plan, Cut-Away and Perspective.

Title: The Brickbuilder - September 1903 (Published monthly by Rogers & Manson Boston)

Author: Spencer, Robert C. Jr.

Description: "Brick Architecture in and about Chicago." An article that includes the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. It includes extensive descriptions, and images of the The Winslow Stable (1894 - S.025); Francis Apartments (1895 - S.032); Heller (2) (1896 - S.038); Husser (1899 - S.046); Charnley (1891 - S.009); Francisco Terrace (1895 - S.030); Winslow (1894 - S.024); Moore I (1895 - S.034). Very helpful in dating photographs of Wright’s early. Excerpts:
       The house at No. 99 Astor Street (Charnley) is one of the few which came from the office of Adler & Sullivan. Severe in its general aspect, its richness of detail is massed at and above the entrance and in the cornice. In these parts wood and copper have been employed, contrasting darkly with the buff Roman brickwork. Unfortunately the effect of this little building is now seriously marred by the huge walls of a newly built apartment house near by.
       Frank Lloyd Wright's houses are all original and interesting. The house at River Forest (Winslow) is the architect's work best known and, on the whole, the most successful. The richly ornamented frieze and simple, widespreading roof are in perfect harmony with the site, the chief feature of which is a grand twin elm. In coloring, the house is very rich, the bricks are Roman of an almost orange tan in the mass, and are full of variety in shading and texture. The roof is of shingle tile especially burned to a rare, dull salmon pink.
The little stable and workshop (Winslow) is classic in composition and terminates the vista through the porte-cochere.
       There are a lot of interesting houses on Woodlawn Avenue (Heller). The clere-storied one at 5132, designed by Mr. Wright, has been given a very pleasing, delicate texture by laying up the warm light gray Roman bricks in white mortar, suppressing the vertical joints with mortar colored to match the bricks. A formal planted approach of unique design, a loggia with octagonal columns of bricks laid with rustic angles, a rich frieze of "staff" modeled by Richard Bock, the sculptor, are interesting features, handled with characteristic cleverness and originality.
   


The Winslow Stable.
 


Francis Apartments.
 
      The half-timbered house (Moore) in Oak Park is noteworthy for its quiet simplicity and the richness of the timber treatment in the overhanging north gable. The lower walls are of deep warm buff Roman bricks, the balustrade of the yard wall and the corbel course under the second story are of richly modeled terra-cotta. A tool house is connected to the main building in picturesque fashion.
       The house in Buena Park (Husser) is more striking than any of the preceding ones, but is hardly so successful. The projection of the eaves overpowers the staircase bay and the general effect of the building is not quiet enough. A charming feature of the exterior, however, is the little roofed colonnade or ambulatory, which forms an extended entrance porch, the reception hall, offices, etc., being on the ground floor. The principal rooms on this and the main floor are wainscoted with buff brick to the tops of the openings, the brick wainscot being enriched with inlaid bands of tile mosaic of gold and color.
       The "Francis" apartment house on Forestville Avenue is bold and dignified in scheme yet refined in detail. Here Mr. Wright has used, in the lower story, a rich wall treatment of thin, flat band courses of Bedford stone with broad bands of flat terra-cotta ornament between them. The two entrance porches are ingeniously and delicately treated, but being in the angles of the porch, are not visible in the accompanying illustrations.
       The "Francisco" apartments out on the west side, widely known as " Honeymoon Terrace," is another building designed on novel lines for collective housing by the same architect. One view shows an angle of the great courtyard which is treated as a small public garden and on which the majority of the apartment entrances face. The other gives a glimpse of the court through the main portal on Francisco Street. A staircase at each angle gives access to a gallery extending all around the porch from which the tenants enter their respective suites of three and four rooms. The premises, particularly the gardens, are kept with scrupulous care and the apartments are very popular with young married people of modest means who have no small incumbrances. (Digital edition.)

Description: Excerpt from a speech given in Chicago in 1916 on The American System of House Building. "The Machine and Art. In all of my work from the beginning I have had faith in the machine as the characteristic tool of my times, therefore an artist's tool. I have believed that this tool put into an artist's hand could be a real benefit to our civilization. I believe that the architecture in America that fails to take into account the machine and modern organization tendencies is going to be of no great benefit to the people. Of course I know that it is going to take a more subtle art within more severe limitations to build houses beautifully while utilizing the machine. -- Frank Lloyd Wright."

Description: The text of a speech given in Chicago in 1916: "The American System of House Building. Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright, famous Chicago architect, recently talked before a body of Chicago business men concerning his American System of House Building. "I hesitated a long time before I decided that I would undertake a thing of this nature. It is something I have always believed could be done here in America better than anywhere else in the world. In all of my work from the beginning, I have had faith in the machine as the characteristic tool of my times, therefore an artist's tool. I have believed that this tool put into an artist's hand could be a real benefit to our civilization. I believe that the architecture in America that fails to take into account the machine and modern organization tendencies is going to be of no great benefit to the people. Of course, I know that it is going to take a more subtle art within more severe limitation to build houses beautifully while utilizing the machine. But I believe this effort is the logical conclusion of my studies and my architectural practice... Simply selling houses at less cost means nothing at all to me. To sell beautiful houses at less cost means everything. A beautiful house means a finer, better house in every way." Original cover price 25c.

To the amazement of the onlookers, the column withstood the compressed loading without collapsing. Truly, Frank Lloyd Wright is decades ahead of his time." Includes five photographs of the S.C.
