Description: “Wright They Are. ‘Even his clients’ clothing and the landscape outside their windows were taken by Wright as part of the overall experience...’ Frank Lloyd Wright was not only the greatest architect America has yet produced, he was one of our greatest creators in any of the arts. Furthermore, he was, with Whitman, Jackson Pollock, and a few others, an American genius who could only have been an American. For this reason we prize him.
       But architecture, unlike poetry and painting, is a particularly fragile, vulnerable, and ephemeral art form. The greater the architect, the stronger the repressive forces that mean to see to it that his work lasts no longer than generation at most. And Wright's work seems to have had a fatal magnetic attraction for the wrecker's ball...” Includes one photograph of a Wright window. Original cover price $1.00.

Description: “Profiles. The Prodical Father. In Europe and the far east, there has been for sometime passed a disposition to refer to Frank Lloyd Wright as the Father of Modern Architecture, and of late this salutation has been caught up and echoed in this, his native land. In my waggish way, I might observe in passing that this would lend credence to a dark suspicion that modern architecture was born out of wedlock. But it is rather the business of this brief monograph to record the news that Father himself has recently been manifesting a renewal of interest in this child deposited on his doorstep, and has even been giving evidence of a disposition to go back to the work and look after it.
       ...Indeed, if the editor of this journal were so to ration me that I were suffered to apply the word ‘genius’ to only one living American, I would have to save it up for Frank Lloyd Wright.” Includes one illustration by Marsh. Original cover price 15c. (Sweeney 242)

New York is finally, to its past discredit and its present honor, harboring its first building by Frank Lloyd Wright, the last and greatest of the trio of master builders that began with Henry Hobson Richardson and Louis Henri Sullivan. This building, a little red prairie dwelling, has but momentarily alighted, like a bird of passage, on the edge of central park at Eighty-ninth Street and Fifth Avenue, for a few days after these words appear its walls will begin to crumble under the wrecking bar, to make room for the new Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, which Wright has designed for this block-long site. Next to the house, in an equally evanescent shed, New Yorkers have had an opportunity to look at a comprehensive exhibition – models, photographs, and drawings – of Wright’s work, spanning the 60 years between the Winslow residence, in Chicago, the first building he did after he left Sullivan’s employ and was completely on his own, and his output of the present year..."

Description: "Lunch hour. At noon one day last week, we were strolling past the new Guggenheim Museum, a spiraling concrete pile conceived by Frank Lloyd Wright that is being erected on upper fifth Avenue, when we came upon a group of workmen taking their lunch time ease on a curbstone outside the growing edifice. Reflecting that these carpenters, cement mixers, and pipe fitters were of the stuff of the builders who sent the pyramids soaring above the infinities of the desert, we shopped between a pair of them who were gnawing on hero sandwiches, sat down on the curbstone, and grilled them about the work in progress. We ask about the general feeling toward Mr. Wright's extraordinary creation, one of our companions stopped chomping on his hero and peered thoughtfully across fifth Avenue... We asked our seller acquaintance whether all of his colleagues knew about Wright. ‘They talk about him almost as much as I do about women,’ he said. ‘How many buildings do you think I've been on without ever knowing who the hell the architect was? Hundreds, I'll bet. But this joker has the knack of attracting attention." Original cover price 25c. (Sweeney 1176)

Description: "Notes and Comments." (On Wright’s death.) "Frank Lloyd Wright was an old friend of ours, and we shall miss him very much. We doubt whether he had any intention of dying so soon, and we were certainly unprepared for the news of his death. He was one of those people (Bertrand Russell and Picasso are among them) who seem able to outwit the humiliations and diminutions of age, and able, therefore, to out wit its supreme consequence... For the last decade or so, Wright maintain an office here, in a couple of rooms at the Plaza -- one of the few buildings that he wouldn't have pulled down if he'd had his way about the leveling of this, to him, repellent city... For one thing, Wright really was a genius; the work was there to be marveled at and enriched by. For another, even at his most outrageous, his uncannily handsome face would be twisting with merriment, his bright eyes would be measuring the degree of your irritation and mischievously calculating ways to heighten it. He was having a good time and he hoped you were having a good time, too." Also translated and published in Bauen und Wohnen, June 1959 (S#1315). Original cover price 25c.  (Sweeney 1343)

Description: "The Sky Line. What Wright Hath Wrought. There are many ways of approaching the new Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and perhaps the best is the roundabout route that has been opened up by the timely appearance of "Frank Lloyd Wright’s Drawing for a Living Architecture". ...What is unusual about Wright is that the sketches and the finished presentation drawings of his buildings are works of art in their own right... Wright’s creative intentions at their purest. ...By the same token, when Wright failed, he failed with originality and decision - the inverted triumph of a great acrobat who so despises the safety net that he would rather break his neck than rely on them... From the moment I examined the preliminary drawings (Guggenheim) I was disturbed and puzzled by its design... I can think of only one way of fully redeeming Wright’s monumental and ultimately mischievous failure - that of turning the building into a museum of architecture... Could it be that it was this, and not abstract painting, that Wright had in mind, at least unconsciously, all the time?" Original cover price 25 cents. (Sweeney 1339)

Description: Excerpts: "Oak Park, Ill. - The moment a workman comes in here, he takes one look around and says, ‘Oh, this house is one of his, isn’t it?’ Then he groans and lets you know how much more work it’s going to mean for him," said Jeannette Fields, sitting in the living room of her 77-year-old house. Mrs. Fields did not have to say who ‘he’ is - her house was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, who lived in Oak park from 1889 until 1909. In that period and the years just following, Wright designed or altered almost 30 houses here and in neighboring River Forest, where the Field’s house was built originally for Arthur Davenport in 1901... Several Wright houses have sold recently for about $170,000, about 20 to 25 percent more than other homes in the neighborhood... Just a couple of doors down Forest Avenue, (from Wright’s Home & Studio) is one of Wright’s best coherent wholes - the Heurtley House at No. 318, a noble, self-assured mass of reddish brick built for a Chicago banker in 1902. The Heurtley House is now owned by Jack Prost, a biology professor who purchased the house in 1973, three years after moving to Oak Park in the hope of setting in a Wright House. It is one of Wright’s finest prairie houses, as many of his early works were called. It gathers its many rooms under a vast, sprawling hipped roof, with rows of windows, in neat horizontal strips, tucked up near the top and a grand arched entrance." Two Copies.

Description: The Luis and Ethal Marden House, Mclean, Virginia. "Rear Window. From the Front, this 1950s Frank Lloyd Wright House Looks Innocent Enough but the View Is Killer. Frank Lloyd Wright was known for – among other things – his genius at designing houses that let their occupants experience the surrounding landscape while making a minimal impact on it and for pioneering compact houses that are elegantly designed but easy to live in and (in theory) affordable. He showcased both talents in a house that he designed in 1952 for Luis Marden, a legendary National Geographic photographer and writer, and his wife, Ethel Cox Marden, a mathematician and champion sea diver who shared her husband‘s love of adventure (in their 60s, the couple sail together across the Atlantic)..."

It has its value, however, for those who care to check on the consistency, persistency and growth of his ideas.

That is to say, Wright, who is now 81, has for most of his life preached the doctrine of combining the utilitarian with the beautiful in designing his buildings.
