Transcript

  • 1. Assignment: Houses of Frank Lloyd Wright The conceptual development of Frank Lloyd Wright’s long career can be traced through his suburban houses. Stretching over 60 years, Mr. Wright created the bar for what suburban architecture could be in a virgin land. The variations explored combine the self-defining modern issues of a young nation: mechanization, standardization, the car, the nuclear family and unique identity. Styles titled by Mr. Wright and then promoted to the public through his prolific writings include the Prairie Style, textile block and Usonian; to name a few. These spatial iterations were celebrated and supported by like-minded publishers and architects, nationally and abroad. Your assignment is to present one of the residential works listed below in a visual format. The five-minute presentation should include, images of the work, plans, sections, elevations, details, renderings, etc. Most importantly, the presentation should define the style of the work per Mr. Wright’s oeuvre. Demonstrate the principles at work visually. You are the educator here. Use both images and text. The name, location and date of each work should be at the top of each visual page. Save your file in the following PDF format: Wright-title of work-your last name.pdf At the start of class we will load up all of the files and then you will present. The Greenfield library has many excellent books on Mr. Wright. Find your subject, scan what is necessary and return the book so others may do the same. Show etiquette. Maybe, work together. Due next class. Also, you may use Flickr, Youtube, esto, artstor to find high-resolution images. Do not trust imagery below 800X600. Show your text sources at the end in MLA format. Sign off with your last name.

  • 22. Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio 951 Chicago Avenue •  The “Prairie Style” –  “H. Allen Brooks, writing in Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School (NY: Braziller, 1984), emphasizes the American-ness of the Prairie Style, given its "theoretical connection with nature, the design process being derived from natural laws rather than philosophical idealism or classical rules" . Wright and other members of the Prairie School believed that the design should adapt perfectly to function. "The creative process was 'organic,' unfolding or growing from the inside out, establishing integral relationships between plan and elevation, interior space and external expression, architecture and decoration"

Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio 951 Chicago Avenue •  Llyod originally used the •  Also in 1895, Wright front room of his house on the second floor as his added a two story studio extension to east side •  In 1895 the two story known as the polygonal Bay on the Children’s playroom. south side was added –  The first floor was built as his dinning room –  The same year, Wright also added a two story extension to the east side of the house

  • 65. "What about the concrete block? It was the cheapest thing in the building world. It lived mostly in the architectural gutter as an imitation of rock-faced stone. Why not see what could be done with that gutter rat? Steel rods cast inside the joints of the blocks themselves and the whole brought into some broad, practical scheme of general treatment, why would it not be fit for a new phase of our modern architecture? It might be permanent, noble beautiful.” -Frank Lloyd Wright
