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.

Recensione:

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)
