One of the greatest pioneers in the history of architecture Widely thought to be the greatest American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) was a true pioneer, both artistically and technically. At a time when reinforced concrete and steel were considered industrial building materials, Wright boldly made use of them to build private homes. His prairie house concept--that of a low, sprawling home based upon a simple L or T figure--was the driving force behind some of his most famous houses and became a model for rural architecture across America. Wright's designs for office and public buildings were equally groundbreaking and unique. From Fallingwater to New York's Guggenheim Museum, his works are among the most famous in the history of architecture
Frank Lloyd Wright : master builder by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer( Book )
21 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 456 libraries worldwide
"This book presents twenty-five of the most renowned and significant buildings of America's premier architect, from his early Prairie work in Oak Park, Illinois, in the 1890s to his daring creations of the 1940s and 1950s." "Published in association with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, this superbly illustrated volume features previously unpublished photographs for which renowned architectural photographers Michael Freeman and Paul Rocheleau gained unprecedented access to some of Wright's masterworks. The book examines in unsurpassed detail a selection of Wright's architecture that covers the phenomenal range of his work, including such internationally famous buildings as the Home and Studio in Oak Park, Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, as well as several lesser-known residences such as the Auldbrass Plantation in South Carolina and the Kenneth Laurent house in Rockford, Illinois." "The works featured here are succinctly documented by one of Wright's former apprentices, with text that details the development and execution of each commission. Also included throughout is a selection of Wright's extensive writings, unpublished talks, and private letters."--Jacket

Frank Lloyd Wright : the heroic years, 1920-1932 by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 404 libraries worldwide
"Frank Lloyd Wright's wife, Olgivanna, famously said of her husband, that he "seemed to thrive on hardships." From the years 1920 to 1932 Wright's fortunes were at a low ebb; he was plagued by financial, personal, and professional setbacks, but saw the time as one of challenges instead of one of defeat. Unable to actually build much, his imagination led him to visionary, often quite splendid, conceptions of what architecture could be, laying the groundwork for much of the revolutionary architecture he would build in the decades to follow. During this period he designed almost fifty projects, of which only a few were built, but those few are seen today as among his most important creations. They include the majestic Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, the four exquisite textured concrete block houses as well as the elegant hilltop Hollyhock House in Los Angeles, renovations and additions to his beloved home, Taliesin, in Wisconsin, the Octillo Desert Camp in Chandler, Arizona, and his work as design consultant For the lavish Arizona Biltmore Hotel and Cottages in the desert in Phoenix. Rare and unseen photos as well as little know drawings from this period are on lavish display in this important work on the master architect."--Jacket
Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford : thirty years of correspondence by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
"A fallout over isolationist politics in the early 1940s led to a 10-year gap in their exchange, and when it resumed, the two were on an entirely different footing: Wright, the elder dean of American architecture at the height of his creative powers, and Mumford, an established critic in late middle age deeply committed to rebuilding a humanist outlook in the aftermath of World War II." "Frank Lloyd Wright & Lewis Mumford offers an intimate look inside the minds and hearts of these two cultural giants, deepening our understanding of the men and the society they helped shape."--Jacket
