INLAND ARCHITECT & NEWS RECORD
   
Date: 1888

Title: Inland Architect & News Record - V. XI - May 1888 (Published by The Inland Architect Press)

Author: Signed F. Ll. Wright: Del.

Description: "Residence For William Waller, Chicago. J. L. Silsbee, Architect." Signed: "F. Ll. Wright: Del." After attending the University of Wisconsin, Frank Lloyd Wright headed for Chicago. In 1887 he took a position as draftsman for Joseph Lyman Silsbee, an architect well known for Queen Anne and Shingle-Style homes. Later that year, he moved to the office of Alder and Sullivan. Wright wrote about his experience working with Joseph Lyman Silsbee. "Silsbee was doing Edgewater at the time, the latest attempt at high-class subdivision, and doing it entirely for J. L. Cochran, a real-estate ‘genius’ in his line... His work was a picturesque combination of gable, turret and hip, with broad porches quietly domestic and gracefully picturesque... The office system was a bad one. Silsbee got a ground-plan and made his pretty sketch, getting some charming picturesque effect he had in his mind. Then the sketch would come out into the draughting room to be fixed up into a building, keeping the floor-plan near the sketch if possible. But the sketches fascinated us. 'My God, Cecil, how that man can draw!’ " An Autobiography, Wright, 1932, p.70. Silsbee must have been impressed with Wright’s ability to illustrate, giving him credit for this illustration, published in 1888. (Sweeney #6)

Description: "Residence of W. I. Clark, La Grange, Illinois. Frank L. Wright, Architect." W. Irving Clark Residence (S.013 - 1893). In 1887 Wright joined the firm of Adler & Sullivan. To earn extra income Wright designed "bootleg" houses while still working for Adler & Sullivan. The W. Irving Clark house was one of Wright’s first bootleg homes, commissioned in 1892 and completed in 1893. A dispute grew out of his acceptance of independent commissions, and in 1893 Sullivan fired Wright. Wright began his own firm, and this example of Wright’s work was published in August, 1894.

Description: Architectural Possibilities of the Luxfer Prism. That the architectural methods of today will not he in vogue in future is as clear to the thinking mind as that the methods of a generation ago have been displaced by those of the present age. The world moves, and despite our boasted advancement we shall be left far behind in a few years if we do not keep pace with the procession. No one who now visits New York City, for instance, after an absence of five or six years, can fail to notice the vast improvement in the planning of the downtown district. Steel and terra cotta and glass have fairly revolutionized the old methods of stone and brick and darkness. The high building is as truly a result of evolution from former ideas as is the lightning express or the ocean steamer... To characterize this new prism as one of the most remarkable improvements of the century in its bearing on practical architecture is to speak but mildly. In the opinion of some of the foremost architects of this country the Luxfer prism is destined to work an entire revolution in planning, and to necessitate very extensive changes in construction. In view of the practical unanimity of the highest authorities on this point, a careful consideration of some of the reasons for their belief will be of interest... This will no longer be necessary, since the Luxfer prism gathers up the precious rays and deposits them in the remotest corner, wherever they may be wanted. And while its use may diminish the electric light and gas bills, the benefit to health and comfort will be incalculable.

Author: Anonymous

Description: View of the Harlan House from the Southeast. Published in The Inland Architect and News Record, July, 1897, Volume XXIX, No. 6. Text: "A Chicago Residence. Frank L. Wright, Architect." Designed in 1892 while Frank Lloyd Wright still worked for Louis Sullivan, it is considered one of Wright’s "bootlegged" houses. There are two cantilevered balconies, one that runs the length of the front of the house, and a shorter balcony on the South elevation. The face, side and possibly the base of the balcony is covered in Sullivanesque panels, and the front balcony is topped with planters. Just below the roof line is another simplified cut-out design, which is repeated in the dormer above. The entrance is reached on the left side of the house. Stairs lead up to a hall that is open on the second floor. The Library is straight ahead, Living Room to the right, Dining and Kitchen to the left. Five sets of floor to ceiling doors (and or windows) in the Living Room open to an enclosed Terrace. A side entrance is seen on the left. Over time, the front balcony was modified, and the side balcony eliminated, exposing the large semi-circular window in the stairwell. (Sweeney 23)

Description: An Interesting Competition. The American Luxfer Prism Company have organized a competition among architects and draftsmen that presents many interesting features. The remarkable lighting effects obtained by their method of prismatic radiation has established an innovation similar to the advent of the elevator in changing the designs of buildings and in increasing their available space. Now architects are called upon to show in a competition in which liberal premiums are paid, how the prismatic light can be further utilized, and also united with architectural effects...

Description: Two Studies for the Luxfer Prism Building. Dietrich Neumann wrote: No architect's name was given for either design, but "design no. 1" was later republished by Wright as his own. "Design no. 2," similar in character and overall layout, was drawn by the same draftsman. This design, too, was in all probability created by Wright." Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, March 1995, p.30. Wright later published Design 1 in the Architectural Forum, January 1938, and in A Testament, 1957.

Description on Page 64:
"Study for Luxfer Prism Building -- Design No. 1. This suggestion is based upon a story height of eleven feet, and a divisional unit of eleven feet in plan. No attempt at structural elaboration has been made, but the steel frame quietly and consistently covered with terra cotta. The openings are simply covered with rich screens of Luxfer iridian prisms set in slightly projecting frames of ornamental iron. In general surface and effect these are similar to the forilux installed in the second story of the Home Insurance building, of Chicago, the offices of Armour & Co., and the Union National Bank. Openings with movable iron frames for ventilation and filled with plate glass are introduced in the middle of this richly bordered surface of prisms." The wall surfaces are preserved and enriched by this treatment, as the Luxfer iridian plates are as solid and substantial in appearance as the wall itself. The openings in the center of the plate which are here shown, about four feet square, are protected by a light canopy filled with prisms which permits a view of the street, and further increases the light. The structural members in the first and second stories are screened by the prism surfaces which are carried in front of them. The plate glass is retained in the lower part of the first story for show window purposes, and for the same reason a plate glass center is inserted in the second story forilux, also covered by a canopy.



   

Description on Page 64:
Study for Luxfer Prism Building -- Design No. 2. This suggestion is in the nature of an emphasis of the vertical members of the steel frame, knit together at the top and at the bottom. The usual attempt at florid " topping out " has been dispensed with, and a simple rich frame of terra cotta completes the structure within itself. The upper portion of each bay is filled with a surface of Luxfer iridian prisms. The lower portion, which is shaded dark, is filled with plate glass. This treatment provides a continuous frieze of Luxfer prisms in the upper part of each story. The first and second stories are provided with canopies swung from the top of ornate posts or columns beginning at the second floor level. These columns also carry electric lights. The entire surface of the first and second story fronts, underneath the canopies, is of plate glass, showing the structural members behind.

Description: Street View Rollin Furbeck Residence. "Residence For Mr. Furbeck, Oak Park, Illinois. Frank L. Wright, Architect." This is one of the earliest photographs of the Furbeck Residences and captures Wright’s original intent. The Porte Cochere is on the left, with the driveway leading in from the street. By the 1940s the Porte Cochere had been enclosed, and the driveway removed. The entrance was reached through low exposed walls that were removed by the 1940s. The transition from Wright’s earlier homes with Sullivanesque details, toward his Prairie style is evident. The facade of the upper two floors in the front is similar to the Winslow (1894), Heller 1896) and Husser (1899). But it also has the beginnings of his prairie style with the horizontal bands from the upper sills to the soffits. Of particular note is the use of wood trim within the upper horizontal bands. This became a design element in Wright’s later Prairie styled homes. This is possibly the first home to utilize this design element.

Description: Unity Temple, A Masterpiece on the Way to Restoration. Frank Lloyd Wright once said: "Unity Temple, Robie House and the Imperial Hotel, these are what I had to say." The Imperial Hotel, sadly, has gone; the Robie House happily has been saved, although it no longer is used for its original purpose; Unity Temple not only survives but is still a working church – one with the growing membership. Indeed, Wright’s early concrete monolith, a block and a half from the rattling "L" in Oak Park, stands today as the best remaining example of his public buildings. And, unlike the Imperial, Midway Gardens and the Larkin Building, to take three examples of distraction, it apparently is on its way to preservation...

A partner in the firm of... he was inspired to study architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright's Oak Park houses, and now he owns one – the Mrs. Thomas Gale of 1909. He and his wife Nancy bought it in 1963 from Sally Gale, daughter of the original owner. It was stuffed with Victorian furniture; the front balcony had fallen onto the lawn; and surfaces were encrusted from years of non-maintenance. Neighbor had even circulated a petition to demolish the eyesore. But the young couple worked hard, with limited funds, to restore a loved it object and have been repaid manifold. ‘When you actually live here,’ says Rosenwinkel, ‘you notice the small touches of Wright’s genius – how the simple technique of adding two steps makes the dining room is sitting place, how the flat plane of the fireplace keeps the heat from driving you to the edge of the room..."
