Frank Lloyd Wright's Later Public Architecture, 1938-1959

The project is a book on the later public architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, designed in the last twenty-plus years of his life (1938-59) and partly realized after his death. I envision the book as eight or nine chapters, each dealing with an individual building and related projects, or with projects in the same region of the U.S. The buildings would be the subject of a scholarly history and analysis that treats the commissioning clients, the processes of design and construction (including Wright’s and his successors’ collaborations with engineers and builders), and critical assessments of the completed architecture, in relation to its regional or urban cultural history. I seek a summer stipend to support travel to buildings and archives.
