by Kenneth Hafertepe, American Architects And Their Books 1840 1915 Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download American Architects And Their Books 1840 1915 book, Since the Renaissance, architects have been authors and architecture has been the subject of publications. Architectural forms and theories are spread not just by buildings, but by the distribution of images and descriptions fed through the printing press. The study of an architect's library is an essential avenue to understanding that architect's intentions and judging his or her achievements. In this well-illustrated volume, a chronological sequel to American Architects and Their Books to 1848, twelve distinguished historians of architecture discuss from various points of view the books that inspired architects both famous and not-so-famous, and the books the architects themselves produced. They examine the multifaceted relationship of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century architects to print culture--the literary works that architects collected, used, argued over, wrote, illustrated, designed, printed, were inspired by, cribbed from, educated clients with, advertised their services through, designed libraries for, or just plain enjoyed. The result is a volume that presents the intersection of the history of architecture, the history of ideas, and the history of the book. Changes in print culture during this period had a significant impact on the architectural profession, as revealed in these well-informed scholarly essays. In addition to the editors, contributors include Jhennifer A. Amundson, Edward R. Bosley, Ted Cavanagh, Elspeth Cowell, Elaine Harrington, Michael J. Lewis, Anne E. Mallek, Daniel D. Reiff, Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., and Chris Szczesny-Adams. Among the architects discussed are A. J. Downing, Charles Sumner Greene, James Sims, Samuel Sloan, John Calvin Stevens, Thomas U. Walter, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Robert R Taylor And Tuskegee

by Ellen Weiss, Robert R Taylor And Tuskegee Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Robert R Taylor And Tuskegee book, Robert R. Taylor and Tuskegee interweaves the life of the first academically trained African American architect with his life¿s work ¿ the campus of Booker T. Washington¿s Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute. In this richly illustrated architectural history, the author shows how a black youth born in North Carolina shortly after the Civil War earned a professional architecture degree at MIT, and how he then used his design and administrative skills to further Booker T. Washington¿s agenda of community solidarity and¿in defiance of the then-expanding Jim Crow policies¿the public expression of racial pride and progress. The book also considers such issues as architectural education for African Americans at the turn of the twentieth century, the white donors who funded Tuskegee¿s buildings, other Tuskegee architects, and Taylor¿s buildings elsewhere. Individual narratives of Taylor¿s Tuskegee buildings conclude the volume.
