Title: The Western Architect- April 1916 (Published monthly by The Western Architect, Inc., Chicago)

Author: McLean, Robert Craik

Description: "The Chicago Architectural Exhibition of 1916. For twenty-seven successive years the Chicago Architectural Club annually presented to the general public examples of the best work of the year by architects, sculptors and decorative painters, not only of Chicago, but the country at large... Three of these early members of the club are now engaged upon the most notable works performed by "foreign" architects in the history of the modern world. Walter Burley Griffin won a world's competition and is planning and constructing the capital city of Australia. William K. Fellows is commissioned by the Chinese government to design pretentious educational and religious structures required by the new Chinese Republic. Frank Lloyd Wright, whose particular trend in design has created more discussion by architects, not only of his own country but throughout the civilized world than any other, unless it be his great prototype, Sullivan, has been commissioned by the Mikado of Japan to visit that country and design an immense palace or hotel in the Capital City of Tokio (sic)..."

Title: The Western Architect - September 1916 (Digital) (Published monthly by The Western Architect, Inc., Chicago)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: The text of a speech given in Chicago in 1916: "The American System of House Building. Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright, famous Chicago architect, recently talked before a body of Chicago business men concerning his American System of House Building. This System is being handled in a commercial way by the Richards Company of Milwaukee, but the directing genius back of the plan itself and the designer of all the houses is Mr. Wright. In his talk before the Chicago business men, Mr. Wright said: "I hesitated a long time before I decided that I would undertake a thing of this nature. It is something I have always believed could be done here in America better than anywhere else in the world. In all of my work from the beginning, I have had faith in the machine as the characteristic tool of my times, therefore an artist's tool. I have believed that this tool put into an artist's hand could be a real benefit to our civilization. I believe that the architecture in America that fails to take into account the machine and modern organization tendencies is going to be of no great benefit to the people. Of course, I know that it is going to take a more subtle art within more severe limitation to build houses beautifully while utilizing the machine. But I believe this effort is the logical conclusion of my studies and my architectural practice... Simply selling houses at less cost means nothing at all to me. To sell beautiful houses at less cost means everything. A beautiful house means a finer, better house in every way." Original cover price $5.00 per year subscription.

Part one was published in the November 1923 issue of The Western Architect. Part Two Includes: IV. Changes As The Work Proceeded. Some changes to program had to be made. I had intended to cast the concrete piles in a board hole, inserting them with no disturbance of the old layers of topsoil, bringing over boring machines for this purpose. Mr. Mueller found this impracticable owing to the presence of all piles and boulders in the soil and much of the mud too soft, so the holes were punched by driving in a slightly tapered wooden pile...

The mission was set by Mr. Wright before his death...
