Example text

During the morning hours on the clear days of spring, summer, or fall—when the house is in shadow—the garden foliage and branching backlighted by the sun attracts the eye more than the house. From midafternoon on, the house is highlighted and the dark-brown textured surface of the shingles creates the illusion that the house is recessed more deeply among the trees. At the same time, the flowers and colorful leaves of the garden are in full sun, which accentuates the sense of approaching the house through a garden.

63 Whatever the inspiration for Wright’s entry choreography, his use of turns and steps as deliberate landscape experiences should be recognized as techniques to organize otherwise undifferentiated space. The turns signaled movement from one realm to another and gave momentary pause for reflection upon a new perspective, while the act of ascending first one grouping of steps and then another heightened the anticipation for arriving at the point of destination that ascension in and of itself creates.

The coalescence of all these influences, or forces, affected everything Wright learned during his years of apprenticeship and formed the philosophical basis for his personal vision of merging his architecture with nature, the developed landscape, the visual and fine arts, and the larger environment of community as he conceived, defined, and constantly refined his principles for organic architecture during the 70-year span of his professional life. 2 The Emergent Years: 1889–1897 Wright’s personal involvement with the processes of decentralization and suburbanization began within months of his arrival in Chicago—as soon as he felt he could afford to ask his mother to make a home for the family in the big city.
