Whatever visionary brilliance Frank Lloyd Wright possessed as an architect did not extend to his talent for structural engineering, nor, as this often-searing account shows, did he succeed at engineering human lives and souls.

Wright was famously individualistic, stubborn, and egotistical. But that's only the beginning of the epic soap opera that roiled around him as Wright extended his franchise to two cultlike, communal encampments, in Wisconsin and Arizona, known as Taliesin (Welsh for "shining brow"). -- Booklist.

...<b>Water and Architecture  </b><br>, Moore, Charles W.
19 Moore, Charles W. ...Water and Architecture

New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1994
 0810939754 / 9780810939752 Hardcover in Dust Jacket. 
Architecture engages in a continual dialogue with its environment, and water is one of the basic elements of that dialogue. Now more than ever, water is featuring in the most advanced, challenging architectural designs, and this study presents an account of its resurgent importance.

Sites discussed range from the Trevi Fountain in Rome to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania and the gleaming Tokyo Sea Life Park in Japan.

Charles Moore's text first addresses the symbolism of water as a design element, then examines specific applications in all kinds of structures and settings: fountains and waterfalls, rivers and canals, lakes and pools, oceans and islands. He also takes a look at basic design principles and environmental issues.

Documentary illustrations and plans accompany the text, and each section is complemented by a portfolio of colour pictures by photographer Jane Lidz, bringing the locations and ideas discussed to life.

No flaws, Gift Quality.
