A Taliesin legacy : the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright's apprentices / Tobias S. Guggenheimer.
This beautifully illustrated and colorful book focuses on the work of the designers and architects who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright at the Taliesin Fellowship in Scottsdale, Arizona from 1937-1950s. There are hundreds of photographs and drawings in this first edition book, many from the apprentices’ own archives and previously unpublished. The author interviewed and traced the careers of many former apprentices, including internationally known architects E. Fay Jones, John Lautner, Wallace Cunningham, Bruce Goff, and Paolo Solari (the architect and designer of Arcosanti in Paradise Valley, Arizona). Guggenheimer spotlights the work of all these apprentices which collectively represents the core of the Organic Architecture movement and illustrates this movement with examples from Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. Through the interviews, the author reveals the true experience of being at Taliesin.
