Author: Rause, Vince
Description: “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pittsburgh. Innovation or Insanity. For Frank Lloyd Wright, Pittsburgh in the 1930s was a bad dream come true. According to the iconoclastic philosopher /architect's poetic approach to building, a structure's design should "grow" organically, shaped by its natural surroundings and the needs of its human inhabitants, and not be arbitrarily designed according to the dictates of prevailing fashion. It should harmonize with its environment, not attempt to dominate it. It should show its beauty in function and simplicity, not in stagy grandeur. It should revere and magnify the human spirit, not dwarf it. There may have been a town somewhere which more acutely offended Wright's aesthetics than Pittsburgh in its smoky heyday – Dresden after the bombing, maybe; Johnstown after the flood – but few cities drew more of Wright's verbal fire than the rusty, sooty, artless mess that was pre-Renaissance Pittsburgh.
Wright was horrified by the industrial squalor and disheartened by the ponderous Gothic and Neo-Classical hulks rising above the landscape like a herd of granite brontosauri. The fact that Pittsburgh's power brokers liked those grand, massive buildings gave Wright no pause. The fact that the buildings he hated most were some of the city's proudest assets slowed him not at all. He had something to say, and he let them have both barrels...” Includes two illustrations of Wright’s by Jim Conaway (cover plus inside spread), and three illustrations by Frank Lloyd Wright.
