15 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Lloyd Wright : Europe and beyond by Frank Lloyd Wright( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this book look not at the United States, the context usually associated with Wright, but at countries around the globe. Anthony Alofsin has assembled a superb collection of scholars to examine Wright's importance from Japan to Great Britain, France to Chile, Mexico to Russia, and the Middle East. Interwoven in the essays are stories of champions and critics, rivals and acolytes, books and exhibitions, attitudes toward America and individualism, and the many ways Wright's ideas were brought to the world. Together the essays represent a first look at Wright's impact abroad, some from the perspective of natives of the countries discussed and others from that of informed outsiders."--Jacket

The struggle for modernism : architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning at Harvard by Anthony Alofsin( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time in history, what were once the disparate schools of architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning came together at Harvard University in the 1930s to forge a new vision of modernist thought and practice. By tracing the powerful flux of ideas at Harvard's Graduate School of Design in the 1930s and 1940s, Anthony Alofsin reveals a radically novel picture of how American modernism emerged, struggled, evolved, and was ultimately eclipsed." "The book follows the development of the GSD leading up to the pioneering deanship of Joseph Hudnut and his groundbreaking efforts with Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, who came to teach at Harvard between 1937 and 1952. But even before Gropius entered the scene, a modernist agenda for collaborative design had already taken shape among the school's preeminent intellectuals, one that would redefine the boundaries of design and establish the fields of landscape architecture and urban planning as we know them today. Alofsin skillfully captures the passions and personalities that helped to ignite the movement, making this the first true-to-life account of the dawn of modernism in America." "Filled with archival photographs, drawings, and renderings that have never before been published, this book is an excellent research tool as well as a fascinating historical investigation for students and professionals in the fields of art, architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning, as well as for architectural historians."--Jacket

Prairie skyscraper : Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prairie Skyscraper traces the history and evolution of the Price Tower through a series of essays written by eminent Wright scholars and historians - presenting numerous important documents, drawings, and photographs from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the Price Tower Arts Center. Many of these items are shown here in print and exhibition for the very first time. Coming at the end of his fertile career, the Price Tower demonstrated Wright's use of his organic system of geometry to build a skyscraper with a central supporting core and cantilevered floors - known as the "taproot" system of construction and regarded by Wright himself as one of his most important contributions to architecture. Examination of this geometric language and its expression in the Price Tower reveals a symbolic function of design that went beyond the traditional statements of corporate and economic power associated with tall buildings."--BOOK JACKET
