Pressestimmen

A fabulous tribute to the major works of one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Bookseller Synonymous with great architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright also created beautiful gardens. This is a record of them and is full of inspiration to carry you through the winter till your garden flourishes again. The book will allow you to wander through the awsome Taliesin or exquisite Fallingwater in your mind's eye, and demonstrates the principle that gardeners should complement nature, not engineer her. Waterstone's Books Quarterly Did Frank Lloyd Wright design gardens during his long career? This glorious books shows us that he most certianly did. Author Derek Fell has taken all the photographs, which really capture the way the designer's mind was working... One can see echoes of Wright's style in the work of various American landscape designers and his importance in this sphere has been underestimated. This book helps redress that balance. BBC Gardens Illustrated Fell's book is a substantial coffee table editon, lavishly illustrated and carefully crafted so as to give the reader an insight into Wright's work. Reckless Gardener Derek Fell shared his first thoughts about Frank Lloyd Wright's landscapes with Historic Gardens Review. Now here's the book - and a highly interesting one it is, as well as beautifully illustrated, as one would expect from this skilled writer-photographer. Historic Gardens Review A great book for lovers of the famous American architect. English Garden A delightful and instructive book on his houses and their designed landscapes. Irish Times A sumptuous photographic feaast with an enlightening text. Limited Edition, South Worcestershire & Cotswolds A great book for amateur gardeners or garden visitors. Art Book

Synopsis

The product of extended visits to properties associated with Wright, and extensive interviews with surviving colleagues and students, this is the first book in full colour to focus on Wright's four most famous residential landscapes - his first home and studio at Oak Park, Illinois; his magnificent 3,000 acre summer home Taliesin, Wisconsin; his 600-acre winter home Taliesin West, Arizona; and Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, the commission that made him world famous. This book also explores the source of Wright's inspiration in Japanese and Mayan landscapes and his appreciation of the stone meeting circles and naturalistic prairie plantings of the great landscape architect Jens Jensen. Two final chapters offer planting plans for a prairie-style and a desert-style garden inspired by Wright's designs. Publishing to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright's death. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Large Gorgeous Photos Throughout Entire Book 10. Oktober 2009
Von Woodlandtrails - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
There are so many LARGE, beautiful and colorful photos of Wright's various homes and gardens throughout this book it is worth the book price just to view them over and over. Looking at them gives ideas for your own home. Frank Lloyd Wright's work is phenomenal and this book explains why in pictures and words.

Organic Landscaping 3. Dezember 2010
Von Patrick Curren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have mixed opinions of this book. First of all the photographs are in themselves works of art. Forget FLW; forget architecture. The photographs are of an extremely high resolution and very clear/bright. Then as you look at FLW architecture and FLW landscaping, one realizes that they are taken from amazing viewpoints which are in themselves works of art. I own a small library of FLW books but none of them come close to the quality of the photos and the paper they are printed on. I was never really impressed with FLW's Falling Water even when I made the journey to tour the house, but the photo of Falling Water "frozen" in winter is breathtaking.

Now for what I was disappointed in; the text....... The book starts off with a very brief history of FLW and some of it is wrong. Actually, the author could have just taken more pictures instead of creating chapter one. The quotes are quite annoying. "'Taliesin lives...the desert blooms.' PHILIP JOHNSON, GRADUATE OF TALIESIN FELLOWSHIP". Not sure where the author came up with this piece of information since there were no footnotes. There is no way that Philip Johnson graduated from the Taliesin Fellowship. I am not sure anyone graduated from the Taliesin Fellowship but that is another book with a very sad story with footnotes. Claiming Philip Johnson graduated from the Taliesin Fellowship is like saying FLW was an architect that built in the international style....NOT! This book starts off like a FLW sales brochure with multiple statements touting that FLW was not only the greatest architect but was the greatest landscape architect that ever lived...NOT! The author references FLW quotes about landscape architecture continuously throughout this book. If you want to find out about FLW's personal or professional life, don't waste your time with reading anything FLW wrote. They are lies.

As you get further into the book, the text gains ground when the author applies his knowledge to the interpretation of FLW's landscaping. While I hate the text, the photos are of the highest quality; for that alone, I will keep this book as part of my FLW library.

The Creative Beauty of a Master 13. September 2009
Von E. Abadia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Frank Lloyd Wright is a bank of inspiration for all interested in art, architecture and gardening. One of the best architects of our times (a genius), past and future. This book by reknowned writer (also master gardener) and photographer Derek Fell captures and describes beautifully with incredible sensitivity the art, connection and respect that Write had for nature and the natural beauty of his country.
Even if you are not interested in gardening you must read and enjoy this well worth having treasure book. Great publishing and bainding. Check out Glen Fell's other garden books!

Great Photos and Summary 6. November 2011
Von Sean Knowes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I really enjoy this book. The wide scale photos are magnificent. I didn't think of Wright as a landscaper, but this book changed my mind. It really is a measure of how big his ideas were. Creating landscapes on terra forming levels using mostly native plants and able to make small courtyards look like they grew naturally. I think of his ideas when I work around my own house.
In awe of his gardens 11. Juli 2014
Von Samuel Sims - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I love gardens . When I saw that there was a book on the Frank Lloyd Wright gardens I knew I must have it. We have visited several of the homes he created and his landscapes always reflect the beauty of the homes. I also enjoyed the sculptures he places in the gardens. Many gardens to admire in this beautiful book
