9780711235946: The Gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright

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.

Featuring an introduction by James Van Sweden, America's leading garden designer and landscape architect, this book highlights a revolutionary take on garden design. It also explores the source of Wright's inspiration in Japanese and Mayan landscapes as well as 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.

Review:

Gardens of Frank Lloyd Wright


From: Introduction - Wright's Love of Nature

Frank Loyd Wright (1867-1959) is world famous as an architect. He was a genius in the way he wedded stone and wood, steel and concrete, buildings and nature. Less well known - in fact, hardly known at all - is Wright's remarkable gift for landscape design and the beautiful gardens he cultivated during his lifetime, particularly at his summer home, Taliesin, and his winter home Taliesin West. Cornelia Brierly, landscape architect and graduate of Wright's architectural fellowship, has been associated with Wright's work for more than 75 years. When asked how she rated Wright as a landscape architect, she declared: "He was the greatest landscape architect that ever lived. " In my view, this is hardly an exaggeration. Wright's landscapes can be compared with those of the great British landscape architect, Capability Brown (1716-1783), whose work transformed the gardens of the stately homes of England; and the Brazilian, Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994), whose acclaimed landscape projects include the promenade at Rio de Janeiro's fabulous Copacabana Beach. Like Wright, both gardened on a vast scale, altering the natural landscape to create magnificent vistas that disappear into infinity. All created lakes, bridges, woodland, hills and contours where none previously existed. Because Wright was an architect as well as a landscaper, he not only knew how best to site a residence in a particular location, and how best to improve a challenging landscape, but also where to leave nature alone. ...
