Frank Lloyd Wright Unpacking the Archive
By Barry Bergdoll and Jennifer Gray, with essays by Michael Desmond, Carole Ann Fabian, Elizabeth S. Hawley, Juliet Kinchin, Neil Levine, Ellen Moody, Therese O’Malley, Ken Tadashi Oshima, Michael Osman, Spyros Papapetros, Janet Parks, Matthew Skjonsberg, David Smiley, and Mabel O. Wilson

Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this volume reveals new perspectives on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, a designer so prolific and familiar as to nearly preclude critical reexamination. Structured as a series of inquiries into the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives, it is a collection of sixteen scholarly explorations rather than a master narrative. Each essay “unpacks” a key object from the Archives—interpreting and contextualizing it, tracing its meanings and connections, juxtaposing it with other works. Among the projects discussed are Wright’s quest to build a mile-high skyscraper, his little known project for a Rosenwald School for African American children, and his lifelong dedication to affordable and do-it-yourself housing These and other explorations open Wright’s work to fresh questioning, interpretation, and debate, so that we may consider this iconic figure in new and illuminating ways. Hardcover. 256pp. 274 illus.
