One of the most original and dynamic developments in American architecture, the Prairie School was a regional manifestation of the international revolt and reform that occurred in the visual arts during the early years of the twentieth century.Inspired by Louis Sullivan and given guidance and prominence by Frank Lloyd Wright, the members of the movement sought to achieve a fresh architectural expression. Their designs were characterized by precise, angular forms and highly sophisticated interior arrangements-an approach that proved immensely significant in residential architecture. H. Allen Brooks discusses the entire phenomenon of the Prairie School-not just the masters but also the work of their contemporaries. Drawing on unpublished material and original documentation as well as on interviews, he assesses each architect’s contribution and traces the course of the movement itself-how and why it came into existence, what it achieved, and what caused its abrupt end.
About the Author:
H. Allen Brooks may be credited with coining the designation ’Prairie School’ with the publication of his doctoral dissertation of that name in 1957. His classic work The Prairie School, which received the Alice Davis Hitchcock Book Award from the Society of Architectural Historians for the most distinguished work of scholarship in the history of architecture published by a North American scholar in 1971–72, has been in print continuously since then. Professor emeritus of fine arts at the University of Toronto and a past president of the Society of Architectural Historians, Brooks is also the author of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School and Le Corbusier’s Formative Years and is the editor of Prairie School Architecture: Studies from the ’Western Architect,’ Writings on Wright, The Le Corbusier Archive, and Le Corbusier.
Vincent Scully has been widely honored as one of the most gifted historians and critics of architecture. He is Sterling Professor Emeritus of the History of Art at Yale University and Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Miami. Other publications include The Shingle Style Today (2003) and Frank Lloyd Wright (1960).
