During the 1920s, as the five remarkable projects in this book show, Frank Lloyd Wright developed architectural prototypes of far-reaching consequence. None of these schemes - Doheny Ranch, the Lake Tahoe summer colony, and the A.M. Johnson desert compound, all in California, the Gordon Strong automobile objective in Maryland, and San Marcos in the Desert, a compound of hotel and houses in Arizona - were built. But in them, Wright explored advanced building technologies and untried geometric patterns, and conceived rural and suburban building complexes that restructured their sites in a manner calculated to heighten the grandeur of each location. Earlier designs had approached their settings more tentatively, with linkages achieved through architectural extensions that ranged over the terrain but left the sites themselves less changed. Now a new, more persuasive unity between building and site resulted, one in which roads and other movement systems were so skillfully integrated that results of unequaled scale and majesty were achieved. Wright continued to develop these ideas in many subsequent works, notably Taliesin and Taliesin West, his homes in Wisconsin and Arizona. In preparing their texts for this book, authors David G. De Long and Anne Whiston Spirn drew on a wealth of fresh archival sources as well as their investigation of the sites and of models constructed especially for this study. Their essays are illustrated with nearly 170 original drawings for the five schemes and related buildings, as well as Taliesin and Taliesin West, many of which are published here for the first time. In addition, a special portfolio of drawings, assembled by C. Ford Peatross, places Wright's designs of the 1920s in the context of the architectural representation of the automobile and the roadway through 1930, both in the U.S. and abroad, to illustrate the ways in which his architecture stood apart and was influential. Completing this handsome volume is Robert L. Sweeney's valuable detailed chronology of Wright's life and work between 1922 and 1932

Frank Lloyd Wright and the living city by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
"Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is acknowledged as America's greatest architect. Near the end of his life, in 1958, Wright published The Living City, the final version of his vision of an ideal social order. Indeed, all of his buildings and projects can be seen, retrospectively, as prototypes and proposals, models for the new, decentralized pattern of living that he offered as a blueprint for the future and from which we have much to learn today."--Jacket

Eero Saarinen : buildings from the Balthazar Korab archive by Eero Saarinen( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
"Through the eye of photographer Balthazar Korab, this book provides an insider's view of the buildings and working methods of Eero Saarinen. It joins iconic photographs of Modernist masterpieces in their prime with many rarely seen images of Saarinen's buildings and their design, construction, models, and details, enriched with intimate portraits of his professional colleagues, home, and family." "The photographs are grouped by project, and the projects are arranged in chronological order according to the date of the commission. Defining images for each building - often the famous and most published views - open the sections, accompanied by images of models and construction photographs (when they exist in the Korab archive), with exteriors, interiors, and, in some cases, related gardens and building additions, Related images of interest, as well as plans for the buildings, are reproduced in appendices."--BOOK JACKET

Lost knowledge : confronting the threat of an aging workforce by David W DeLong( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Executives today recognize that their firms face a wave of retirements over the next decade as the baby boomers hit retirement age. At the other end of the talent pipeline, the younger workforce is developing a different set of values and expectations, which creates new recruiting and employee retention issues. The evolution from an older, traditional, highly-experienced workforce to a younger, more mobile, employee base poses significant challenges, particularly when considered in the context of the long-term orientation towards downsizing and cost cutting. This is a solution-oriented book to address one of the most pressing management problems of the coming years: How do organizations transfer the critical expertise and experience of their employees before that knowledge walks out the door? It begins by outlining the broad issues and providing tools for developing a knowledge-retention strategy and function. It then goes on to outline best practices for retaining knowledge, including knowledge transfer practices, using technology to enable knowledge retention, retaining older workers and retirees, and outsourcing lost capabilities. - Publisher
