Description: "Coonley House. ‘The most successful of my houses’, wrote Wright in his autobiography, on the subject of Coonley House at Riverside; remembering with pleasure that he had been commissioned by the owners to design it because they had glimpsed in is work ‘the countenance of principle’... Speaking at Princeton in 1930 ha said: ‘A house, we like to believe, is in statu quo a noble consort to man and the trees; therefore the house should have repose and such texture as will quiet the whole and make it graciously at one with external nature’." Includes 10 photographs by Antonio Mulas. Description: "Wright at Oak Park... Starting from a generally neo-medievalist source, but sensitive also to the legacy of the local Shingle Style tradition, Wright combined their linguistic etyms and his own desire for innovation. Despite his later biographical reconstruction, he drew out their new architecture slowly and ‘organically’ from the tormented cocoon of conventional language, traditional revival and stylisms of memory." Includes 18 photographs and illustration. Photographs by Carlo Santi. Original cover price $9.50.

The History of Modern Architecture. In the mid-twenties, J.J.P. Oud wrote in a Wendingen-Augabe: "Although I am deeply convinced of the relativity of all appreciation in art, where contemporaries or persons very near to us are concerned, yet in my opinion the figure of Frank Lloyd Wright towers so assuredly above the surrounding world, that I make bold to call him one of the very greatest of this time without fearing that a later generation will have to reject this verdict..."

(Translation:) "Airhouse. So it was called this house balloon that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and was recently exhibited in New York at the International Home Exposition. It is made up of two plastic fabric domes - a lightweight and very resistant, fiberthin produced by the United States Rubber Company - domes, inflated as balloons, stands by simple internal air pressure, constant pressure maintained by an electric pump. The perimeter of the domes is kept adhering to the soil by a circular tube full of sand or water... As houses, it is a futuristic project: what is surprising not so much to live in a "restrained balloon" - as you live with today's furniture - fabrics, chairs, fridges, flowers...

Amazingly to us, the house did not look toward the falls, it sat above them. It seemed impossible to imagine the result... My father was assured that the house could not stand up."
