This title presents the Wright stuff. It is the definitive publication on America's greatest architect. The three-volume monograph features all of Wright's designs (numbering approximately 1100), both realized and unrealized. Volume 3 covers the postwar years and the 'living architecture' period. Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is widely considered to be the greatest American architect of all time; indeed, his work virtually ushered in the modern era and remains highly influential today. His wide-ranging and paradigm-shifting oeuvre is the subject of Taschen's three-volume monograph that covers all of his designs (numbering approximately 1100), both realized and unrealized. Made in cooperation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, this collection leaves no stone unturned in examining and paying tribute to Wright's life and work.

From his early Prairie Houses (typified by the Robie House) to the Usonian concept home and progressive 'living architecture' buildings to late projects like the spiral Guggenheim Museum in New York and the development of his fantastic vision of a better tomorrow via his concept of the 'living city', all of the phases of Wright's career are painstakingly described and illustrated herein. Author and preeminent Wright expert Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer highlights the latest research and gives fresh insight into the work, providing new dating for many of the plans and houses. A plethora of personal photos gives readers a feeling of what it was like to work in Frank Lloyd Wright's fellowship, traveling each spring from Taliesin West to the old Taliesin complex in Wisconsin and returning the next fall to spend the winter in sunny Arizona again. Volume 1 is dedicated to the early Chicago years and Prairie Houses, the period which provoked a profound influence on European architects.

Volume 2 deals with the work after World War I, beginning with the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and covering Wright's quest to design affordable houses with systematic construction methods and the Usonian concept house, with the forest-sited villa Fallingwater being the dramatic climax. Volume 3 starts after World War II, when Wright's organic 'living architecture' introduced ideas for the use of solar energy and curved open spaces. In addition to the Guggenheim museum, the postwar era also saw extraordinary projects such as Wright's plans for a new Baghdad, his only realized high-rise tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, the crystal figure of the Beth Sholom Synagogue in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, and an endless row of houses that reached new complexity by floor plans based on hexagons and playing with intersecting angles.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Should have been better 11. Juni 2009
Von Anthony Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I highly anticipated this book but the reality of it is somewhat disappointing. Starting with the cover. Woodgrain? Wright would have hated it! But the content is what matters. On that score, it's a mixed bag. On the plus side, the generous dimensions of the book are appreciated. The book is well-illustrated with Wright's conceptual sketches, floor plans, elevations and perspectives. However, the photography is often less than mediocre. The best-known buildings are mostly represented with professional photographs and interesting vintage shots, including some construction photos. But far too many houses are shown with subpar and small photos by the likes of Thomas Heinz, etc. That is inexcusable when so many excellent images are available of ALL Wright buildings! Did the editors even do a search on Flickr and other websites for available images? When I spend $125.00 for a book, I expect top-notch photography throughout. A book of this kind, which claims to be definitive, should have been produced with a commitment to excellence.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I don't need to read this in three languages 24. Juli 2010
Von M. Darby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I didn't mind the oversize shape of the book to terribly. Nor does using a magnifying glass to view the drawings bother me enough to bestow a negative review. These are compromises I'm willing to accept in order to have a complete overview of Wright's work. However, I could do without the tri-lingual text. I suspect that is/was a mandate of the publisher, but it does nothing for me but add needless pages and cost. And actually, I'd be more than happy with the extra pages (and cost) if they contained more or larger photos/drawings instead of the other languages.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Authoritative and Pretty but... 12. Juli 2010
Von David H. Williams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
My wife and I have made a hobby of studying Frank Lloyd Wright's residential architecture. We've visited Wright designed homes throughout the country and hope to build a Wright inspired Usonian-type retirement home. We have collected 20+ books depicting Wright's work to better inform ourselves of the proportions and details required to create "the look" we want to achieve. We purchased this volume and the companion volume Frank Lloyd Wright, Complete Works 1917-1942 because they contain Wright's original drawings (which are in and of themselves works of art) and because they are so comprehensive--including projects that were never built. The drawings are reproduced from Wright's original works so they are authentic. They are beautifully printed. The downside is that reproducing detailed images of large drawings requires spacious pages so the volumes are large and heavy. This makes them difficult to shelve and tiring to use. Even though the format is over-sized for a book, it is not large enough to reproduce Wright's original drawings without significant reduction so a magnifying glass is required to see finer details. (I suspect the finest lines in Wright's original work have been lost altogether.) Every public library should probably have this set and we will probably add Volume I to our collection when it is released. But we are pretty fanatical. For most home libraries it is probably overkill.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Magnificent! 6. Juni 2009
Von Wayne Dynes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
There have been many books on America's greatest architect. I have not seen any that are so carefully and sumptuously produced as this. Because it is trilingual, the texts are necessarily concise. I wonder though (even as a former teacher of architectural history who likes to gab about it) whether a lot of text is necessary. One can just submerge oneself in the work! The price is most advantageous, even though one should commit to buying the other two in the set when they come out. The only competition is a lavish Japanese set now selling for more than four thousand dollars.

Don't deny yourself the pleasure of this book!
5.0 von 5 Sternen complete Wright 3. August 2014
Von Carlos Atl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
exactly what it claims to be, complete record of Wright's work with great photos and plans. Some have griped that many plans and drawings too small: it would be impossible to do unless you either made this a 20 volume series or make the books bigger... and they are HUGE already. We live in a golden age of architecture publishing: 30 years ago there were few books with color photographs of Wrights work, in fact one of about 8" x8" on his drawings. Now there are too many too list. This Taschen series has unusual photos, never seen-before drawings and good summaries by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer. You can buy other books to fill the gaps for bigger and more photos, like those by Japanese publisher GA. As a Wright fan-atic, I am thrilled to have these books.
