Louis Sullivan Creating a New American Architecture - hardcover

1989, ISBN: 9780764957710

ID: 774789835

University of Texas Press. Fine+ in Fine+ dust jacket. 1989. First Edition. Hardcover. 0292790236 . In the original shrink wrap. The Architecture of William Morgan presents fifty of the architect's early projects that reveal his authentic approach to design and the rich, consistent and true value of his work. Like the great master Frank Lloyd Wright, Morgan constantly relates buildings and human activity to their ecological contexts. Educated at Harvard under Walter Gropius and Jose Luis Sert and trained in the offices of Paul Rudolph, Morgan also draws creatively on design principles of ancient North America and Micronesia. The book's author, Paul Spreiregen, practices architecture in the Washington D. C. Area and formerly directed the AIA' s urban design program and the NEA' S architectural and environmental design programs. May require extra shipping to outside U. S. A. ; Color Photographs; Oversize; 262 pages ., University of Texas Press, 1989, Pomegranate. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 192 pages. Dimensions: 10.6in. x 9.5in. x 1.0in.On the eve of the twentieth century, Chicago was rapidly outgrowing its borders. Architect Louis Henry Sullivan (American, 1856-1924) answered the demand for more office space, theaters, department stores, and financial centers by pioneering what would become an essential model for city lifethe skyscraper. Blending Art Nouveau complexity with geometric elegance, Sullivans tall buildings included Chicagos Auditorium Building, the largest building in the world when it was completed in 1889. Sullivans design was heralded as the Wonder of the Agea title equally fitting for the architect himself. Louis Sullivans designs stand today as leading exemplars of Chicago School architecture. Even Frank Lloyd Wright, a former assistant to Sullivan, would later refer to him as his lieber Meister, or beloved master. Sullivan brought to his practice a conviction that ornamentation should arise naturally from a buildings overall design, restating, in a large or small way, themes expressed in the structure as a whole. Having spent much of his career in a late Victorian world that bristled with busy, fussy ornament for ornaments sake, Sullivan refuted the fashionable style with the now famous dictum Form follows function. This break from tradition is perhaps most evident in Sullivans strides to reimagine the commercial spacefrom Americas earliest skyscrapers to the small-town banks that populated the architects commissions in the second half of his career. In Louis Sullivan: Creating a New American Architecture, nearly two hundred photographs with descriptive captions document Sullivans genius for modern design. Patrick Cannon introduces each chapter with key biographical information and discusses the influences that shaped Sullivans illustrious career. Rare historical photographs chronicle those buildings that, sadly, have since been destroyed, while James Caulfields contemporary photography captures Sullivans existing Chicago buildings and many other structures in eastern and midwestern cities that are of equal importance in the architects oeuvre.
