Inhaltsangabe: The first edition of this book was widely recognized for the unique service it performs. The review in the AIA Journal stated, "Here is the whole Frank Lloyd Wright catalog—not another thematic discourse, limited period or subject evaluation, art-book photo collection or the like, but an ambitious compilation of every built project designed by FLW, which has been needed for over a decade."
Progressive Architecture summarized the book's program and plan as follows: "This work is the only publication that documents all of the buildings designed by Wright. It also offers a short commentary on each building and a picture of each extant structure and, incidentally, includes over 100 buildings that have never before appeared in print. For each building, a unique name (usually the name of the original client) and a catalog number are assigned, and the date of conception and the location are given. The text describes methods and materials of construction, identifies the basic plan, and provides other information that serves to place the building in its context or to relate it to other buildings."
And the book was welcomed in the nonarchitectural press as well:
"William Allin Storrer has done for Frank Lloyd Wright admirers what Wright himself did for architecture. Storrer has put together a complete listing with drawings and photographs of every structure Wright was known to have designed or assisted in designing.... It is a remarkable collection that will become as timeless as the work of perhaps the greatest architect in history."
—The Cleveland Press
"...an indispensable book.... The foreword to the book was written by Henry-Russell Hitchcock and is an eloquent tribute to the lasting value and importance of Storrer's work."
Henry-Russell Hitchcock, in the course of his appraisal, observes that "however thoroughly one may previously have known the work of Wright over the years—and I have had some familiarity with his work for forty years—there are innumerable surprises here, not merely as regards the work since the last war, never before brought together, but even for the early decades, the 'classic' years of the Prairie house before World War I and the less productive years that immediately followed."
This second edition replaces a number of photographs with new ones that show the buildings to better effect. In addition, corrections have been made in the text, and factual information that has come to light since the original publication in 1974 has been incorporated. The indexes have also been usefully expanded.
From the Inside Flap:
Over the past decade, there has been a significant revival of interest in the architecture and designs of Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). From Barnsdall Park in Los Angeles to the Zimmerman house in New Hampshire, from Florida Southern College to Taliesin in Wisconsin, with Fallingwater in between, Frank Lloyd Wright buildings open to the public receive thousands of visitors each year, and there is a thriving commerce in reproductions of Wright's furniture and fabric designs. Among the many books available on Frank Lloyd Wright, William Allin Storrer's classic--now fully revised and updated--remains the only authoritative guide to all of Wright's built work.
This edition includes a number of new features. It provides information on Frank Lloyd Wright buildings discovered since the first edition. It features full-color photographs to highlight those buildings that remain essentially as they were first built. To facilitate its use as a convenient field guide, this durable flexibound edition gives full addresses with each entry, as well as GPS coordinates, and offers maps giving the shortest route to each building. Preserving the chronological order of past editions, the catalog allows readers to trace the progression of Frank Lloyd Wright's built designs from the early Prairie school works to the last building constructed to Wright's specifications on the original site--the Aime and Norman Lykes residence.
The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright will be indispensable for anyone fascinated with Wright's unique architectural genius.
