Despite the renewed interest in Frank Lloyd Wright and the increasing body of literature that has illuminated his career, the deeper meaning of his architecture continues to be elusive. His own writings are often interesting commentaries but tend not to enlighten us as to his design methodology, and it is difficult to make the connection between his stated philosophy and his actual designs. This book is a refreshing account that evaluates Wright's contribution on the basis of his architectural form, its animating principle and consequent meaning. Wright's architecture, not his persona, is the primary focus of this investigation. This study presents a comprehensive overview of Wright's work in a comparative analytical format. Wright's major building types have been identified to enable the reader to pursue a more systematic understanding of his work. The conceptual and experiential order of each building group is demonstrated visually with specially developed analytical illustrations. These drawings offer vital insights into Wright's exploration of form and underscore the connection between form and principle. The implications of Wright's work for architecture in general serves as an important underlying theme throughout. This volume also integrates the research of several noted scholars to clarify the interaction of theory and practice in Wright's work, as well as the role of formal order in architectural experience in general. By seeing how Wright integrates his intuitive and intellectual grasp of design, the reader will build a keen awareness of the rational and coherent basis of his architecture and its symbiotic relationship with emotional, qualitative reality. A graphic taxonomy of plans of Wright's building designs helps the reader focus on specific subjects. Among the diverse areas covered are sources and influences of Wright's work, domestic themes and variations, public buildings and skyscraper designs, and the influence of site on design. Complete with a chronology of the master architect's work, Frank Lloyd Wright: Between Principle and Form is an important reference for students, architects and architectural historians.
