DESIGN Date: 1949
Title: Design - June 1949 - (Published monthly except July - September by Design Publishing Company, Columbus, Ohio)
Author: Stoddard, Donna M. (Director of Art, Florida Southern College)
Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright Designs a College. America’s Most Celebrated Architect Creates an Unparalleled Campus Growing. ‘Every building is out of the ground, into the light; a child of the sun.’ These words casually spoken to me by Frank Lloyd Wright made an indelible impression upon my mind. Watching the buildings from day to day as they grow makes one understand that these buildings are organic structures, belonging to the very earth on which they stand. Because of the intimacy between the various materials of the buildings, there is a unity of purpose created in the people who live, work or worship in them. Mr. Wright does not distinguish between a form that is useful and esthetic. If the design is useful, it is, at the same time esthetic..." Includes six photographs of Florida Southern College.

DESIGN QUARTERLY Date: 1966
Title: Design Quarterly (#64) - 1966 (Published quarterly by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota)
Author: Arnheim, Rudolf
Description: "The Dynamics of Shape." This lengthy article includes three buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Guggenheim, Grady Gammage and Fallingwater. "... By a similar device, Frank Lloyd Wright changes the cylinder or inverted cone of a rotunda into a spiral. The floor space is reduced to an outer shell surrounding an inner court. This shell assumes the function of a one-dimensional track, and the track is made continuous by the elimination of the separate floors. The subdivision of the floors has given way to a sliding decent. Instead of a rather static accumulation of rings, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum embodies a rotation. The visitor does not roam through an immobile storehouse of art, but is carried along a path which introduces the dimension of time into the architecture itself..." Includes four photographs related to Wright. Original cover price $1.00.

Title: Design Quarterly #74-75 - 1969 (Published by Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota)
Author: Finch, Christopher
Description: Process and Imagination. An extensive article covering the work of number of architects worldwide. "Frank Lloyd Wright. Frank Lloyd Wright's place in any discussion of imagination in modern architecture is undeniable. There is a characteristic difference between his work and that of most of his great contemporaries – Le Corbusier, Gropius, Mies, for example. Their work always seems to be striving for some logical expression of a rational esthetic; when it is lyrical it is a result of a particularly satisfying resolution of this esthetic. By contrast, Frank Lloyd Wright was the disciple of an enormously flexible esthetic – which was not without logic but treated rules as something to be broken when the occasion demanded (and these demands seem to have a rived fairly frequently). Some4 of the other architects include: Bruce Goff, Paolo Soleri and Richard Buckminster Fuller. Includes seven illustrations, Mile High Building (4), Hunting Hartford Sports Club (3).

Author: Menocal, Narciso G.
Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright and the Question of Style. ...Wright considered his work to be based on principles of nature, to be organic, yet at no point did he use the free flowing curvilinear forms that usually evoke the rhythms of life, as for instance Art Nouveau did, and later Alvar Aalto. Wright’s architecture was always strictly controlled by geometry, using almost exclusively squares, rectangles, octagons, triangles, hexagons, circles, and arcs of circles – not organic forms these, but forms belonging to the world of abstract geometry. Intuitively, Wright understood the world around him in architectural terms; his assessment took in all that he saw around him as much as what he created as an artist..."

Description: "A New Dawn for Wright’s Child of the Sun. When Anne Kerr stepped into her presidency at Florida Southern College in June 2004, she was in for a surprise. Her job description suddenly included a heavy dose of architectural conservation. The development didn’t spring from demanding alumni or outside pressure. It was of her own making when she realized that the 12 Frank Lloyd Wright structures on campus, said to be the largest collection of the architect’s works on one site in the world, were treasures in dire need of attention..."

THE NATIONAL BUILDER Date: 1910
Title: The National Builder - March 1910 (Digital Copy) (Published by Porter-Hodgeson Co., Chicago)
Author: The Chicago Millwork Supply Company
Description: "From Manufacturer Direct." The full page ad includes two photographs of the Edmund Brigham Residence. Although not identified, it includes an interior and exterior photograph of the house. Interior caption: "Interior View of House Shown Below." View toward the living room from the Reception room. Exterior caption: "Handsome Illinois Residence for Which the Chicago Millwork Supply Company Furnished the Millwork." View of the Bingham Residence from the Northeast. Note: Interior view shows that the work on the interior has been completed. The exterior view shows the yard and drive covered in snow. Because of publishing deadlines, these photographs would have to have been taken during January at the latest, which would indicate the home was completed by January 1910 at the latest. Edmund Brigham indicated that constructed of the house took place during the winter of 1908-9. So it is very feasible that the home was finished by the time these photographs were taken.
