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 nine chapters, each dealing with a building and related projects, or with projects in the same region of the U.S. The book is to be a scholarly history and analysis that treats the commissioning clients, the design and construction (including Wright’s and his successors’ collaborations with engineers and builders), and critical assessments of the inhabited buildings, in relation to institutional and regional histories. I seek an NEH Fellowship for a six-month period to complete travel to buildings and archives, and a draft of the manuscript.
