From "Frank Lloyd Wright: Collected Writings, Volume 2"
From "Two Lectures on Architecture":
"Young man in architecture, wherever you are, whatever your age, or whatever our job, we-- the youth of America-- should be the psychological shock-troops thrown into action against corruption of this supreme American ideal. It will be for youth, in this sense, to win the day for freedom in architecture."
"To the young man in architecture, the word "radical "should be a beautiful word. Radical means "of the root" or "to the root"-- begins at the beginning and the word stands up straight. Any architect should be radical by nature because it is not enough for him to begin where others have left off."
From" An Autobiography":
"A house of the North. The whole was low, wide and snug, a broad shelter seeking fellowship with its surroundings. A house that could open to the breezes of summer and become like an open camp if need be. With Spring came music on the roofs for there were few dead spaces overhead, and the broad eaves so sheltered the windows that they were safely left open to the sweeping, soft air of the rain. Taliesin was grateful for care. Took what grooming it got and repaid it all with interest.
Taliesin's order was such that when all was clean and in place its countenance beamed, wore a happy smile of well-being and welcome for all.
It was intensely human, I believe."
The largest part of this volume is Wright's first autobiography, reproduced in its entirety, with drawings and designs Wright made for it. The volume is completed with several unpublished brief texts and his renowned Two Lectures on Architecture, in which he examined the burgeoning International Style. 110 illustrations, 50 in color.
