JOURNAL OF THE SOCIETY OF ARCHITECTURAL HISTORIANS
   
Date: 1959

Title: Journal of The Society of Architectural Historians, May 1959 (Published quarterly by The Society of Architectural Historians)

Author: Gebhard, David

Description: "A Note on the Chicago Fair of 1893 and Frank Lloyd Wright... One need not seek out obscure examples of Wright’s early work to discover several close analogies to the Turkish Exposition Building. The design which bears the closest relationship is his house for W. H. Winslow, River Forest, Illinois, designed in 1893. This dwelling has a similar overhanging roof, and a band of windows and terra cotta ornament placed directly under the eaves of the roof. Both the Turkish building and the Winslow House present a balanced and symmetrical facade dominated by an entrance area..." Includes three photographs related to Wright’s work: Winslow House, E.P. Irving House and the Cummings Real Estate Office. (Sweeney 1314)

Author: Brooks, H. Allen Jr.

Description: "The Early Work of the Prairie Architects. ‘I well remember’, wrote Frank Lloyd Wright while referring to the period of about 1900, ‘how "the message" burned within me, [and] how I longed for comradeship until I began to know the younger men and how welcome was Robert Spencer, and then Myron Hunt, and Dwight Perkins, Arthur Heun, George Dean, and Hugh Garden. Inspiring days they were, I am sure, for us all. In this way Wright described the years which had been so crucial in his architectural development. The decade of experiment and changes in direction which ended with the new century had finally brought his labors to fruition in the form of a personal and mature architecture. Yet this period was not one of solitude for Wright but, on the contrary, a time when several architects shared his interest and worked toward similar goals..." The article includes references to Wright. Includes one floor plan by Wright. (Sweeney 1411)

Author: Elmslie, G. G.; Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: Letters to the Editor. A response by G. G. Elmslie written on June 12, 1936 to Frank Lloyd Wright’s review of Morrison’s biography of Louis Sullivan which was published in the December 14, 1935 issue of The Saturday Review (Sweeney 394). A reprint of the review follows Elmslie’s letter. Elmslie: "Dear Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright: I read very belatedly with great interest your review of Professor Morrison’s biography of Louis Sullivan, as it appears in the Saturday review of December 14th. There are a few errors, preconceptions and preoccupations of mind in your comment that may be duly stated, in the interest of Truth, if that element is of any importance to you. You are the judge of that.... You, of course, are a great genius, and no one knows this better than I. But I do bespeak entrance into your mind of the still, small voice of truth, of fair play, dignity, and high honor, and the exit of your strange claims of omniscience when you come to write on a great Master and an infinitely greater man than yourself."

Description: Book Review: "The Master Builders", Blake, 1960 ($6.50). "This book consists of four well-written essays: Le Corbusier and the mastery of form, Mies van der Rohe and the mastery of structure, and Frank Lloyd Wright and the mastery of space. The fourth chapter, Prospect, is both a summary and prognostication... The publisher makes a familiar claim in the book jacket that this book is for both the specialist and the layman. This is not so. The Master Builders is solely an introduction for the uninitiated to some of the basic i9ssues of our contemporary physical environment65; and, as such, it is successful. This is no small accomplishment." (Sweeney 1383) Description: "Letters from Louis H. Sullivan to R. M. Schindler. Dec. 12th, ‘18. Dear Mr. Schindler, Your letter Dec. 9th recd last evening. I am glad to learn that you and Mr. Smith are to occupy the Wright house in Oak Park for the winter..." Includes correspondence between Sullivan and Schindler written between December 9, 1918 and March 6, 1923, and includes many references to Frank Lloyd Wright, his work, during the time when Wright was in Japan, and Schindler was working for Wright in California.

"Having been a student under Frank Lloyd Wright from 1902 to 1908, I was working for him while most of the drawings reproduced in the fore part of this book were executed. For example, the drawings of the former window additions to the Chauncey Williams House (No. 1), was made as a study by Wright’s assistant, William Drummond, who was in charge of this specific operation..."  (Sweeney 1491) Description:  1487.01: "The Intellectual versus the City, From Thomas Jefferson to Frank Lloyd Wright," Morton and Lucia White, Harvard University Press and M.I.T. Press, 1962, $5.50. "The Whites’ book, a publication of the Joint Center for Urban Studies... contains a mass of interesting material but is, coming from a philosopher of Professor White’s distinction, curiously disappointing. Concerned that the modern effort to restore the city can draw on no sustaining American mythology, nothing similar to the Greek feeling for the polis or the French love of Paris, the Whites review the opinions of the city of a variety of intellectuals from Benjamin to Lewis Mumford..."

Author: Brooks, H. Allen

Description: "Steinway Hall, Architects and Dreams.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s development as an architect should be traced not only in the buildings he designed but in the milieu in which he worked. In this respect his ‘associates’, as he called his turn of the century colleagues, were an important part of his Chicago environment. Through them he was exposed to new ideas, and with them he discussed problems of design... It was probably no coincidence that Wright, as a designer, reached maturity during this period; at the very least his surroundings offered welcome stimulation... Thus the group at Steinway Hall had had an influence for beyond the confines of official practice. Their activities had done much to establish a climate for expression, a milieu which proved congenial and beneficial to several of their number, and to non more than to Frank Lloyd Wright."

Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright’s Years of Modernism, 1925-1935. Through almost five years, 1925-1929, the very air Frank Lloyd Wright breathed was thick with catastrophe. His home, Taliesin, was once again fully destroyed by fire. Debts drove him to the verge of bankruptcy. Hysterical persecutions pursued him and the new, beloved family who were to remain close to him for the long rest of his life. These blackest years were survived only through personal love and a secure sense of creative accomplishment. This accomplishment was posited, in 1925, on the sumptuous pages of Wendingen. Soon, at the urging of his wide, Wright started to evoke his childhood, beginning A Autobiography..." Republished in "

Description:
"Crisis and Creativity: Frank Lloyd Wright, 1904-1914. What happens when creative work is crossed by personal crisis? Individual case histories, frequent enough in biographic literature, tend toward special pleasing with scant factual evidence. It seemed possible to avoid these shortcomings, somewhat, while looking at the life and works of Frank Lloyd Wright around the time of his first marital break and first trip to Europe, 1909-1910. Wright's early architecture has been amply studied: disagreement about which of the buildings are capital achievements is slight..."

Sixteen years ago I demonstrated in a special article some influences of Japanese and pre-Columbian art on Wright’s architecture built before and after the First World War. (Magazine of Art, 1953.) Wright sent immediately a statement to the magazine but it was not published until now for reasons given elsewhere in this article. In that statement Wright refers to his admiration of Columbian architecture and the involvement of all living architecture, including his own, with the growth of man, society at large, and democracy, within whose fabric such involvements are best realized...."

Viollet-le-Duc's words became a cardinal influence in the formation of Wright’s architectural philosophy. Even in his ninetieth year, Wright spoke of their impact. That the words of Viollet-le-Duc should have commanded the attention of Wright – even before he reached the milieu of the Chicago School, where functional and organic tenets were widely discussed – is ion no way curious..."

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956, but not executed until after the architect’s death in April 1959, the Church of the Annunciation at Milwaukee was built too late to be included in most scholarly studies of Wright’s work. The absence of serious criticism has left the field open to a hold of brief panegyrics, mostly in the professional journals..." Includes five photographs and illustrations of the church.

"Wright scholarship suffered a staggering blow when his heirs decided to bar future research – other than their own – into the vast archives which the architect left behind.

John sergeant, an English architect, writes that he travelled 29,000 miles and spent six years in getting this book together; but just how undigested his material remains can be seen near the end of the book...

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Destruction of the Box Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright, Hollyhock House, and Olive Hill, 1914 - 1924. The decade 1914 - 1924 was crucial in the career of Frank Lloyd Wright. He was at work on two major projects, the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and the Barnsdall commission for Olive Hill in Los Angeles. The Imperial Hotel, although vast and impressive and its grandeur as a Finished building supervised closely by Wright, is not as revealing as the Barnsdall commission of the process of transition that these years represent. During the decade Aline Barnsdall called upon Wright to design for her 45 buildings, of which two were major theaters (one for Chicago, one for Olive Hill); two were her own residence (one for Olive Hill, one for Beverly Hills); 16 were stores; 21 we're houses; 1 was an apartment building; 1 an entrance pavilion; 1 a motion picture theater; and 1 a play house-kindergarten. In addition, he designed a master plan for her property that included the majority of these buildings and anticipated his later theories of planning as developed in Broadacres City.

Author: Smith, Kathryn

Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright, Hollyhock House, and Olive Hill, 1914 - 1924. The decade 1914 - 1924 was crucial in the career of Frank Lloyd Wright. He was at work on two major projects, the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and the Barnsdall commission for Olive Hill in Los Angeles. The Imperial Hotel, although vast and impressive and its grandeur as a Finished building supervised closely by Wright, is not as revealing as the Barnsdall commission of the process of transition that these years represent. During the decade Aline Barnsdall called upon Wright to design for her 45 buildings, of which two were major theaters (one for Chicago, one for Olive Hill); two were her own residence (one for Olive Hill, one for Beverly Hills); 16 were stores; 21 we're houses; 1 was an apartment building; 1 an entrance pavilion; 1 a motion picture theater; and 1 a play house-kindergarten.
