Author: Schuyler, Montgomery

Description: An Architectural Pioneer: Review of the Portfolios containing the works of Frank Lloyd Wright." Book review of the 1910 Wasmuth portfolios. "Such works of Frank Lloyd Wright as he thinks worth preserving in pictorial presentation, and as probably profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, have just been issued in two large and handsome portfolios, from the press of Ernst Warmuth [s.i.c.] in Berlin... Meanwhile, it is hard to see how an unprejudiced inquirer can deny that such designees as Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Wright have the root of the matter, and that their works are of good hope, in contrast with the rehandling and rehashing of admired historical forms in which there is no future nor any possibility of progress."

Author: Sullivan, Louis H.

Description: "Concerning The Imperial Hotel - Tokyo, Japan. ...This great work is the masterpiece of Frank Lloyd Wright, a great free spirit, whose fame as a master of ideas is an accomplished world-wide fact. Through prior visits he had discerned, and added to the wealth of his own rich nature, the spirit, as evidenced in forms, of the ideals of Old Japan, which still persist, in slumber, among its living people, needing but the awakening touch... In this regard the Imperial Hotel stands unique as the high water mark thus far attained by any modern architect. Superbly beautiful it stands – a noble prophecy."

Author: Floto, Julius Author: Sullivan, Louis H.
   
Description: "Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, Japan." Begins with: "Extracts from a report to Frank Lloyd Wright by Enod San, Assistant to Mr. Wright during construction of the building. Dated September 8, 1923... Frank Lloyd Wright’s Imperial Hotel stands practically uninjured after resisting the most severe seismic shocks, both in intensity and duration, the civilized world has ever recorded. Surrounded by ruins the Imperial stands, a symbol of progress and a lasting tribute to man’s power in combating the elements... The Imperial stands with not a single occupant injured and showing no greater damage than slight cracks that would appear as shrinkage cracks at any other time." Includes three photographs of the Imperial Hotel. Note: This volume bound with January-June, 1924 Issues. (Sweeney 159) Description:  "Reflections on the Tokyo Disaster. ...The emergence, unharmed, of the Imperial Hotel, from the heartrending horrors of the Tokyo disaster, takes on, at once, momentous importance in the world of modern thought, as a triumph of the living and the real over the credulous, the fantastic, and the insane... The architect of the Imperial Hotel, whose name by the way is Frank Lloyd Wright, a fact I should in all honor have mentioned earlier, had I not been so engrossed in an attempt to clothe in words the basic idea of my thesis - the most dangerous and destructive of all ideas – the idea of Credulity; this architect I say, whom I have known since his eighteenth year, and the workings of whose fine mind I believe I fairly follow, is possessed of a rare sense of the human, and an equally rare sense of Earth, coupled with an apprehension of the material, so delicate as to border on the mystic, and yet remain coordinate with those facts we call real life..."

Description: (Side Note) "Louis H Sullivan (1856-1924). Louis H Sullivan passed away quietly on Monday, April 14, 1924, after a week’s illness , of hear failure. As far as the material world is concerned, he ceased to exist some fifteen years ago. The last years of his life were spent in writing and in executing small commissions for appreciative clients... These few tokens of appreciation, coming as they do from unbiased architectural opinion, show the high place in which the works of Sullivan were held outside of America..."

Title: Architectural Record - July 1924 (Published Monthly by F.W. Dodge Corp., New York)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: "Louis H Sullivan - His Work. Louis Sullivan’s great value as an Artist-Architect - alive or dead - lies in his firm grasp of principle. He knew the truths of Architecture as I believe no one before him knew them. And profoundly he realized them. This illumination of his was the more remarkable a vision when all around him cultural mists hung low to 0bscure or blight every dawning hope of a finer beauty in the matter of this world... When he brought in the board with the motive of the Wainwright Building outlined in profile and in scheme upon it and threw it down on my table, I was perfectly aware of what had happened. This was Louis Sullivan’s greatest moment - his greatest effort. The "skyscraper" as a new thing beneath the sun, an entity with virtue, individuality and beauty all its own, was born... The Wainwright Building cleared the way, and to this day remains the master key to the skyscraper as a matter of Architecture in the work of the world..." Original Cover Price 35c. (Sweeney 164)

Description: "In Cause of Architecture: VI. The Meaning of Materials - Glass. Perhaps the greatest difference eventually between ancient and modern buildings will be due to our modern machine-made glass. Glass, in any wide utilitarian sense, is new. Once a precious substance limited in quantity and size, glass and its making have grown so that a perfect clarity of any thickness, quality or dimension is so chap and desirable that our modern world is drifting toward structures of glass and steel. Had the ancients been able to enclose the interior space with the facility we enjoy because of glass, I suppose the history of architecture would have been radically different, although it is surprising how little this material has yet modified our sense of architecture beyond the show-windows the shop keeper demands and gets..."

Mechanical movements are narrowly limited unless built up like the timer of a Corliss engine or like a linotype. The movements easiest of all are rotary, next, the press or hammer, and the lift and slide works together with either or both. In these we have pretty much the powers of the "Brute."
