Summary
In this book, A Taliesin Legacy: The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright's Apprentices, the foremost authority on the work of the Taliesin apprentices, Tobias Guggenheimer, eloquently unveils the spectacular accomplishments of the disciples of the greatest architect in American history.
With dramatic photographs and revealing interviews, this monumental book traces the careers of dozens of architects who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright at the Wisconsin and Arizona campuses of Taliesin. Guggenheimer includes such internationally famous architects as E.
Fay Jones, John Lautner, and Paolo Solari and spotlights the work of those individuals who have received insufficient previous notice - architects whose work collectively represents the living heart of the environmentally forward looking "organic" movement. Guggenheimer's scope is encyclopedic and portrays organic architecture from Europe, Asia, Africa, as well as the United States.
Many of the hundreds of photographs originate in the personal archives of the apprentices and have never before been published.
Readers will be mesmerized as the apprentices reveal the true story of Taliesin, Wright's experiential alternative to university education, and describe how they absorbed Wright's philosophy. In an unprecedented insight into daily life with Frank Lloyd Wright, apprentices describe the evolution of Taliesin as a respected institution during Wright's life and how it remained vital after his death.
You'll learn about Wright's teaching methods, the political hostility against the Fellowship, the international cross-fertilization engendered by Taliesin, and the growing relevance of organic architecture to contemporary concerns. A generous portfolio of drawings and photographs, many in full color, reveals how the apprentices form a significant arm of contemporary architecture.
