1943 FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT Signed First Edition Autobiography

1943 FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT Signed First Edition Autobiography

1943 FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT Signed First Edition Autobiography. Signed First Edition Frank Lloyd Wright Autobiography. FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT, Famous American Architect, often considered the Greatest U. Architect of all time, his greatest legacy is “Organic Architecture, ” or the idea that buildings harmonize both with their inhabitants and with their environment. First Edition, 1943, Book “Frank Lloyd Wright: An Autobiography” Signed, Frank L. Wright” measuring 8.75″ x 8.5, Choice Very Fine. The inscription, written in pencil on the front flyleaf reads: To Tom – Frank L. Wright – July 5 / 54. ” Published by Duell, Sloan and Pearce, New York, the book contains 561 pages, and has a subtitle: “Five Books in One Volume. A single full page photograph appears in the book, before the last page, showing Wright surrounded by 15 of his students. There is light wear on the corners and edges of the covers, and very light toning to flyleaf and outside page edges. Otherwise this book and autograph are in excellent condition. Wright became the chief practitioner of the Prairie School, building about 50 Prairie houses from 1900 to 1910. Early nonresidential buildings include the forward-looking Larkin Building in Buffalo, N. (1904; destroyed 1950), and Unity Temple in Oak Park, Ill. In 1911 he began work on his own house, Taliesin, near Spring Green, WI. The lavish Imperial Hotel in Tokyo (1915-22, dismantled 1967) was significant for its revolutionary floating cantilever construction, which made it one of the only large buildings to withstand the earthquake of 1923. In the 1930s he designed his low-cost Usonian houses, but his most admired house, Fallingwater, in Bear Run, Pa. (1936), is an extravagant country retreat cantilevered over a waterfall. His Johnson Wax Building (1936-39), an example of humane workplace design, touched off an avalanche of major commissions. Of particular note is the Guggenheim Museum (1956-59), which has no separate floor levels but instead uses a spiral ramp, realizing Wright’s ideal of a continuous space. Throughout his career he retained the use of ornamental detail, earthy colours, and rich textural effects. His sensitive use of materials helped to control and perfect his dynamic expression of space, which opened a new era in American architecture. Often considered the greatest U. Architect of all time, his greatest legacy is “organic architecture, ” or the idea that buildings harmonize both with their inhabitants and with their environment.
