Frank Lloyd Wright: In the Realm of Ideas

Frank Lloyd Wright, Author, Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Editor, Gerald Nordland, Editor Southern Illinois University Press $65 (208p) ISBN 978-0-8093-1421-8
Wright's own voluminous writings are still the most direct guide to his thought processes. Quotes from his essays are juxtaposed here with 170 photographs and plans. Words and images form a sweeping if uncritical panorama of his belief that organic architecture should undergird individual freedom and democracy, wedding nature to technology. The catalogue of a traveling exhibit, this handsome volume includes several penetrating essays. Contributors examine the architect's early years in Chicago, his ""second career'' that began in his 60s and lasted until the age of 92, his fusion of function, building materials and landscape. Pfeiffer is director of archives of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation; Nordland is author of Richard Diebenkorn. (March)
