Few architects have shaped the course of architectural history as dramatically as Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). Wright has long been the focus of absorbing scholarly debate. In addition to the many accomplishments of his long career, he is also the author of numerous key essays on design that have influenced entire generations of architects.
This volume brings together the most important essays both on and by Wright. It offers at once an illuminating study of one of the key figures of twentieth-century architecture and an extensive overview of the very principles that are at the foundation of great architecture. Robert McCarter has sifted through all the important scholarly work on the subject of Frank Lloyd Wright to select the highlights in research and reading. Each essay is illustrated richly with archival material.
On and By Frank Lloyd Wright: A Primer of Architectural Principles contains 14 analytical essays that use Wright's buildings as a means of comprehending his complex creative process. The architect of many of the twentieth century's most important buildings, Wright largely remains an enigma today.
Written by renowned architects and architectural historians, On and By Frank Lloyd Wright provides a uniquely presented and meticulously informed look at Wright's buildings, from inception to completion, from his earliest works to his final masterpieces. With over 400 images - including photographs, rare archival material and diagrammatic analyses - the primer provides a far more complete understanding of Wright's work than any previous study. The final word comes from the master himself: in a set of three seminal essays, Wright discusses his own architectural philosophies to leave us with one last lesson from this great American teacher.
