Frank Lloyd Wright : the Western work by Dixie Legler ( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Known primarily for his iconic midwestern buildings, Frank Lloyd Wright found in the western United States a new canvas on which to apply his theories of organic architecture. There he found radically different climates, abundant but unfamiliar building materials - even a different quality of light, which he sought to incorporate into his progressive designs. Surveying twenty-three projects in all the western states outside California, Frank Lloyd Wright: The Western Work shows the profound leaps Wright made in his designs during the second half of his remarkable career."--BOOK JACKET
At home on the prairie : the houses of Purcell & Elmslie by Dixie Legler ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The houses of William Gray Purcell and George Grant Elmsliebuilt mainly in the Midwest and Northeastare the embodiment of the early 20th century marriage of fine craftsmanship and modern technology. Masterpieces of the Prairie Style, each home was designed with the groundbreaking idea that comfort and utility could harmonize with grace and style. Characterized by open plans and site-specific designs, Purcell and Elmslie residences are tied to the land by local materials and low, spreading forms. Their signature use of nature-based ornament and brilliant color further distinguished them from their contemporaries, Frank Lloyd Wright's houses among them. In 24 residential profiles and gorgeous new photographs, Prairie Style expert Dixie Legler and photographer Christian Korab vividly bring to life the pair's enduring dedication to simple elegance and honest design. At Home on the Prairie is the deluxe treatment that this ingenious duo deserves."--Publisher's website
