Russel Wright : the nature of design( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue was published by the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz in conjunction with the exhibition Russel Wright: The Nature of Design, curated by Donald Albrecht and Dianne Pierce, on display at the Dorsky from August 29, 2012 through March 10, 2013. The exhibition and catalogue explore the work and philosophy of renowned industrial designer Russel Wright, focusing on one of Wright's most pervasive preoccupations, which also has much relevance today: the relationship of humankind with the natural world. While examining Wright's entire career from the 1920s through the 1970s, the catalogue focuses on his work between 1945 and 1968, when Wright increasingly designed in experimental and innovative ways. A special component of the exhibition--Man and Nature in the Hudson Valley, organized by Kerry Dean Carso--provides a historical context for Russel Wright's designs and his interest in natural forms. The fully illustrated catalogue features essays by co-curators Donald Albrecht and Dianne Pierce and by Kerry Dean Carso. The catalogue also includes images and text from a slide talk developed in the 1960s by Russel Wright to promote his philosophy of modern living and the importance of maintaining a close relationship to nature." -- Publisher's description

Art house( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Narrated by author and critic Alastair Gordon, Art House is a journey into the private worlds created by a handful of America's most eminent artists and designers, from the romantic (Hudson River School painter Frederic Church's Olana) to the futuristic (urbanist Paolo Soleri's silt-casted structure Cosanti). Each of the homes and studios in Art House, such as Russel Wright's Manitoga and Henry Chapman Mercer's Fonthill, are deeply imbued with the unique vision of its creator, and a physical embodiment of what it means to be an artist, to live an integrated life dedicated to art. For the most part the artists were not architects, and built over a lifetime (Henry Varnum Poor's Crow House, and maverick artist Raoul Hague) giving each place a sense of resonance and duration that most architecture doesn't possess. George Nakashima and Paolo Soleri, who did train as architects, gave precedence to a craft-based approach to building their houses."--Container
