Frank Lloyd Wright • Letters to Architects

selected and with commentary by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer

More than any others, the letters Frank Lloyd Wright wrote to architects speak from the heart. They reveal, from the inside out, what it means to be a genius struggling to reach out and touch his fellows. They proclaim, defend, and exalt his primary passion, Organic Architecture, and in the process reveal his very self. As might be expected his is a many-sided self.

The correspondence with Louis H. Sullivan delineates the student-become-master, the master-become-admirer, the greatest American architect succeeding the greatest American architect. (A treasured find, the poignant Frank Lloyd Wright-Louis H. Sullivan correspondence, spanning the final five years of Sullivan’s life, has never before been available anywhere.)

The letters to Oud, Mies, Saarinen, Raymond Hood, George Howe, Philip Johnson and the rest present a kaleidoscope of moods, witty, pliant, devastating, shifting with shifting circumstances, but at core always constant in their defense of the Organic Architecture that Frank Lloyd Wright believed in totally.
