This lavishly illustrated book devotes itself to Wright's formidable contribution to the medium and features a number of powerful two-dimensional graphic designs and a number of three-dimensional units. Stained glass in the USA as well as the technical aspects of glass making are discussed. The majority of his work in glass was concentrated into the first decade of the 20th century when Wright abandoned old-fashioned stained glass windows and began experimenting with light screens of concrete developing into wood fretwork and glass block and tubing.

The first history of Frank Lloyd Wright's exhibitions of his own work—a practice central to his career More than one hundred exhibitions of Frank Lloyd Wright's work were mounted between 1894 and his death in 1959. Wright organized the majority of these exhibitions himself and viewed them as crucial to his self-presentation as his extensive writings. He used them to promote his designs, appeal to new viewers, and persuade his detractors. Wright on Exhibit presents the first history of this neglected aspect of the architect’s influential career. Drawing extensively from Wright’s unpublished correspondence, Kathryn Smith challenges the preconceived notion of Wright as a self-promoter who displayed his work in search of money, clients, and fame. She shows how he was an artist-architect projecting an avant-garde program, an innovator who expanded the palette of installation design as technology evolved, and a social activist driven to revolutionize society through design. While Wright’s earliest exhibitions were largely for other architects, by the 1930s he was creating public installations intended to inspire debate and change public perceptions about architecture. The nature of his exhibitions expanded with the times beyond models, drawings, and photographs to include more immersive tools such as slides, film, and even a full-scale structure built especially for his 1953 retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum. Placing Wright’s exhibitions side by side with his writings, Smith shows how integral these exhibitions were to his vision and sheds light on the broader discourse concerning architecture and modernism during the first half of the twentieth century. Wright on Exhibit features color renderings, photos, and plans, as well as a checklist of exhibitions and an illustrated catalog of extant and lost models made under Wright’s supervision.

In captivating color photography and well-researched commentary, Tom Heinz captures the essence of Frank Lloyd Wright's genius and his fascination with the interplay of light and shadow in an exquisite representation of Frank Lloyd Wright's lighting treatments. Frank Lloyd Wright's Stained Glass & Lightscreens features not only Wright's iridescent stained glass but a sweeping range of his "lightscreens," Wright's term for his designs that capture the essence of both light and shadow. These screens were not intended to obscure the window view but to modify and focus it through framing. Wright's abstraction of patterns and geometry from nature--plants and flowers--resulted in imaginative stained-glass designs. While he is best known for his stained glass set in metal frames, he also created screens in cut wood, concrete, and terra-cotta. Thomas A. Heinz, AIA, has been involved with the restoration of more than forty Frank Lloyd Wright buildings and is the author of twenty books on Wright. He is also coauthor with Randell L. Makinson and principal photographer for Greene and Greene: The Blacker House and Greene and Greene Creating a Style. He lives in Mettawa, Illinois.
