Author: Ames, Robert Leonard

Description: "A Western Suburban House." The Frank J. Baker Residence, Wilmette, IL (1909 - S.151). "For lack of a better name ‘Western Architecture’ has come to be used in designating the style peculiar to certain of these architects, who have paid particular attention to the building of suburban houses, among whom the name of Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed the house at Wilmette, Illinois, here illustrated, stands conspicuously prominent in any discussion of the distinct innovations that have come to mark our American domestic architecture, particularly in the Middle West... The house illustrated in this article, designed for its owner by Frank Lloyd Wright, architect, Chicago, is one of the most beautiful and well-planned in this village of distinctive homes." Includes six photographs and one illustration. Side Note: Includes a Book Review on "On the Art of the Theater", Craig, Chicago, published by Browne’s Bookstore.

Steel beams were necessary to provide the cantilevered construction over the rocky shore... And what does Mrs. Walker think of the House?

In the opinion of one architectural critic, Taliesin West is the most impressive structure erected in the western hemisphere since the days of the Mayans. Write died in April, 1959, but the work of the fellowship continues, as does his influence on architecture throughout the world.

Description: 1) Wright for rent? Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Seth Peterson Cottage is the only home by the renowned architect which is available for rent to the general public. Over the years I've made pilgrimages to Frank Lloyd Wright creations, happy to admire them from the outside. Then I learned of the Seth Peterson Cottage, the only Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home available to rent. Yours for the stay, all yours. So I booked our reservation. The cottage is located within the tranquil woods of Wisconsin's Mirror Lake Park. Forty miles to its South lies Taliesin, yet Wright never visited the cottage site. Instead he relied on photographs and maps to gain a sense of place. It's believed the house plans were completed before Wright’s death in April 1959 making this one of his last commissions and the final for his native Wisconsin..." Includes four photographs.

Author: Smith, Kathryn

Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright Made His Buildings into Potent Metaphors for Nature: Earth, Fire, Water, Sky. Although Frank Lloyd Wright gave voice to the cause of machine production and industrial materials, his lifelong preoccupation was the duality of art in nature. When budget and client permitted, Wright created lyrical poems to native flora and fauna. The long, deep eaves of the Prairie Houses (which he built by the dozens in and around Chicago for a decade after 1900) reach out in space, echoing the flat Midwestern landscape. In the art glass of the Dana House in Springfield, Illinois, butterflies are crystallized as chandeliers over the dining-room table and light plays against the stylized sumac leaves of the windows as if the house were caressed by the forest..."

Byrd Lewis Mashburn steps out of her tiny bedroom and leans against a sweeping balcony made of tidewater red cypress, a favorite building material of her homes architect, one Frank Lloyd Wright. The septuagenarian points to the concrete floor, dyed in Wright’s iconic Cherokee Red, and to what lies beyond the living room’s towering windows. Where others see Wright’s only private residence built in Florida, Mashburn find memories: the balcony where she slept beneath the stars with her brothers; the nook where they'd stand a huge pine at Christmas time; and the home’s original, circular table, where her father, George Lewis, served fresh-caught redfish for supper... Mr. Wright, we’re the Lewises, and we are from Tallahassee. We have a lot of children and not much money, and we hope you will do a house for us..." Includes two color photographs.

In this strange and wonderful house Frank Lloyd Wright again challenges a dozen fixed ideas. Some men grow timid as they grow older - others gain confidence.

Description: 1) Frank Lloyd Wright says he'll quit Wisconsin. A few days after voters in Madison, Wisconsin had expressed their preferences for him as architect of the cities proposed Civic Center (see p. 42) Frank Lloyd Wright heard news from another quarter that he said would impel him to move his Taliesin out of Wisconsin forever. The Wisconsin Supreme Court handed down a decision that Wright’s home and school near Spring Green (the school is situated on 80 acres of 3000 that he owns there) was not an educational institution and was therefore subject to local taxation. The tax situation amounts to $13,000 -- there's no hurt there," Wright said, "but the interpretation out of which it springs, that does hurt..." (Sweeney 1009) Description: 2) Frank Lloyd Wright won an election in Wisconsin. Madison voters approved him as architect of a long proposed Civic Center and auditorium, also approved a bond issue for the auditorium and voted for a site on Lake Monona advocated by Wright. The latter had drawn up plans for the spectacular center, to be cantilevered over the lake, 15 years ago. "I am immensely encourage..." he said after the voting. Ironically enough, the people's support came only a few days before the great architect announced that he would move his Taliesin East out of Wisconsin altogether (p.53) because of a court ruling that it was not an educational institution and was therefore subject to local taxation.

Description: Zimmerman House. "This rich and rhythmic house expresses 32 simple and basic design ideas of Frank Lloyd Wright. This is the Zimmerman house in Manchester, N. H., built on a one acre lot in 1951. It was designed for a doctor and his wife, whose children have grown up and moved away. It is a cold – country house, farthest east of all Wright’s houses. At first glance, it belongs to Wright’s prairie period, but it reflects the continuing evolution of the architects thought, with many features not found in his early work – like the inside kitchen; the asymmetrical roof pitch; and the large sheets of glass (instead of his earlier mosaic of small panes to break up the reflection on the glass)." Includes thirteen photographs of the Zimmerman house by Ezra Stoller, and the Camera Shop, and three portraits of Wright by Alfred Eistenstaedt. Original cover price $1.00.

Author: Anonymous; Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: "3 New Homes By Frank Lloyd Wright." 1: Harper House, St. Joseph; 2: Thaxton House, Bunker Hill (Houston); 3: Austin House, Greenvillle.
1 House in St. Joseph, Michigan. This house represents a theme Frank Lloyd Wright has been using since the 1920's - the many-angled, prism-like form. "I am convinced," he says, "that the pattern made by the cross section of a honeycomb has more flexibility where human movement is concerned than the square. The obtuse angle is more suited to human to and fro than the right angle..."
2 House in Houston, Texas. This house is a Frank Lloyd Wright solution for the large suburban lot. On the problem of designing for a one or two acre site Mr. Wright says: "We will have a good garden. The house is planned to wrap around two sides of this garden. We must have as big a living room with as much vista and garden coming in as we can afford, with a fireplace in it, and open bookshelves, a dining table in the alcove, benches, and living room tables built-in." A large screened porch virtually doubles the size of the living room, since it can be used all year round in temperate Houston. There is no roof over this porch – only screening. The Bedrooms turn off the living room at a 30o angle to enclose the garden. Street side of the house is almost entirely closed. See Thaxton Residence Study.
3 House in Greenville, South Carolina. This house is a case study of Frank Lloyd Wright’s dictum: "Shelter should be the essential look of any dwelling." As the photograph shows, the great roof of the house is itself, the very epitome of shelter. It projects as much as six feet to shield the house from sun and storm (yet where light is desirable, on the north side, the roof stops at the wall)... Includes 25 photographs and illustrations. Original cover price $1.00.

On the next ten pages, the editors present four hitherto unpublished houses completed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the years before his death in April of 1959.

Four homes include the Davis Residence, Marion, Indiana (1950 - S.324); the Palmer Residence, Ann Arbor, Michigan (1950 - S.332); the Hagan Residence, Uniontown, Penn.

Description: 10th Anniversary Issue. "Architecture of ideas. Wellspring of the decade’s progress was a heritage that came to housing from the ‘20s, ‘30s, and ‘40s – a new. Looking ahead, Frank Lloyd Wright wrote in the late ‘50s: "New uses of livable space will continually evolve – improved, more exuberant, and serene" (H&H Jan ‘58)... The Natural House is a great legacy from Frank Lloyd Wright. This example, built in Manchester, N.H., expressed as many of the simple and basic design ideas which we now take for granted -- but which spring from the fertile imagination of Wright. At first glance H&H pointed out when it published this house, it belongs to Wright's Prairie. Period [an early stage of his career when he developed the essential ideas of a house nestled into the land as if it grew there, and open to the land around it]. But it reflects the continuing evolution of the architects thought, with many features not found in his early work..."

(Sweeney 1498) Description: 1) "On the rolling Prairie... Oskaloosa, Iowa... Here in Oskaloosa new houses like the one above helped set off a chain reaction that is still going on. They spark the demand for better housing in a community where they are where there was no shortages of adequate housing... Over 9,000 people tracked out to look at these two Frank Lloyd Wright custom houses when they were built in 1951. Even though they were private homes -- and not builders’ models -- more than a third of the visitors went back for a second look and what they saw started the homebuilding revolution in Oskaloosa... What else did Oskaloosa find in the Wright houses? ‘Intrinsic value – something so important it can't be measured,’ says their builder Jim DeReus. ‘People came out of curiosity went home with the longing: they, too, wanted a house with all that the word stands for.’ " Includes five photographs and two floor plans of the Carroll Alsop Residence (1948 - S.304) and the Jack Lamerson Residence (1948 - S.305).

Description: "The Wright Way. Frank Lloyd Wright’s La Miniatura is his masterpiece of sunlight and shadow, Martin Filler writes. ‘The house is so distinctive that it’s hard to think of living anywhere else. I would rather have built this little house than St. Peter’s in Rome.’ Thus with characteristic modesty wrote Frank Lloyd Wright about one of his most important designs, the Millard house - called La Miniatura - in Pasadena, California. His justifiable pride in that small masterpiece of 1923 contained more than a touch of vindication. This ingenious structure marked the full resurgence of Wright’s creative energies after a fallow spell at mid-life and began a brief comeback, one of several that punctuated his long, uneven career..."
