Wright and Education

Spring 2017

Guest Editor: Dale Allen Gyure

"Formative connections guaranteed that Wright would be extremely interested in education throughout his life," writes guest editor Dale Allen Gyure. "This aspect of his career, however, isn’t as well-known as some of his other endeavors. The essays in this issue of SaveWright explore new avenues of interpreting Wright’s architectural projects for education, focusing on built work—from the elementary school level to Florida Southern College—unbuilt proposals, and comparisons with other educational communities and theorists in an attempt to better understand how his educational history and philosophy manifested itself in his designs."

Communities by Design

Fall 2016

Guest Editor: Jane King Hession

This issue includes six articles touching on the theme of community in Wright's work. "Communities can take many forms and mean different things to different people," writes SaveWright guest editor Jane King Hession. "The whole of a community comprises its parts. Frank Lloyd Wright was no stranger to this concept: for decades he lived and worked at the center of the Taliesin Fellowship, a community of his own creation. However, as the essays in this issue make clear, Wright also explored the idea of community—at multiple scales—in his architecture and planning."

  • "Reflections on Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonia: Then and Now" by Roland Reisley
  • "Wright’s Geometry of Community" by Neil Levine
  • "Lewis Mumford, Wright and the Politics of Community" by Robert Wojtowicz
  • "Taliesin and Taliesin West: Intentional Communities" by Susan Jacobs Lockhart
  • "A Geometry of Community: A Project Called Cloverleaf" by Michael Desmond
