PROJECT DATECLIENT 1937FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT Taliesin West Scottsdale, Arizona WRIGHT’S WINTER HOME AND STUDIO. HE APPLIED ORGANIC ARCHITECTURE AGAIN USING NATURAL ELEMENTS FROM THE DESERT TO BLEND INTO IT’S SURROUNDINGS.
PROJECT DATECLIENT 1939S.C JOHNSON & SON Johnson Wax Bldg Racine, Wisconsin CONSTRUCTION OF THE TALL “LILY PAD” SUPPORTS WERE VERY CONTROVERSIAL AND HAD TO BE TESTED BEFORE THEY WERE BUILT. THEY ARE 9 INCHES IN DIAMETER AT THE BASE AND 18 FEET IN DIAMETER AT THE TOP.
PROJECT DATECLIENT 1959SOLOMON R. GUGGENHEIM Guggenheim Museum New York City, New York TEXT INTERIOR IS SIMILAR TO THE INSIDE OF A SEASHELL. DESIGNED FOR VISITORS TO TAKE AN ELEVATOR TO THE TOP, THEN VIEW ARTWORKS BY WALKING DOWN THE CENTRAL SPIRAL RAMPELEVATOR
PROJECT DATECLIENT 1964ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY Gammage Auditorium Tempe, Arizona ORIGINAL DESIGN FOR THE OPERA HOUSE WAS TO BE BUILT IN IRAQ. THE CIRCULAR DESIGN IS ABOUT 250-300 FEET IN DIAMETER, 8 STORIES HIGH AND HAS VERY GOOD ACOUSTICS.
PROJECT DATECLIENTS 1936THE KAUFMANNS Fallingwater Mill Run, Pennsylvania THE MOST FAMOUS PRIVATE HOME THAT HE DESIGNED HAS BEEN CALLED "THE BEST ALL- TIME WORK OF AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE". THIS CANTILEVERED HOME SEEMS TO DEFY GRAVITY ABOVE THE FLOWING WATER.
PROJECT DATECLIENT 1936THE KAUFMANNS Fallingwater Mill Run, Pennsylvania PERSPECTIVE DRAWING BY FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT. NOTICE THE RED HORIZONTAL LINE (HORIZON) AND THE LINES OF PERSPECTIVE THAT GO OFF TO THE RIGHT AND TO THE LEFT.
Stop here... until you’re ready for the step by step instructions for the two point perspective architectural drawing
Step 1: Using your ruler and a regular pencil, LIGHTLY draw a horizontal line (horizon) in the lower third of your paper. LIGHTLY
Step 2: Using your ruler, draw a vertical line near the center of the paper (a little to the left of center) Emphasize that ALL lines be done lightly because some will be erased at the end of the project. LIGHTLY! YOU’LL BE ERASING LATER
Step 3: Place a dot (vanishing point) at both ends of the horizontal line (horizon).
Step 4: Using a ruler, draw a line from the vanishing points to the top and bottom of the vertical line.
Step 5: Draw the ends of the house by drawing two vertical lines, forming a left and right side of a box.
Step 6: To draw the roof, first make an “X” on the short side of the house from corner to corner. Where the “X” intersects, draw a vertical line into the air.
Step 7: The triangle that forms the peak of the roof is made from this vertical line.
Step 8: The top of the roof is drawn from the top of the triangle to the right hand vanishing point. Match the angle of the roof peak to the angle of the opposite peak (slide your ruler).
Step 9: Erase extra lines so that the outline of the house is defined. Keep part of the horizon line as well. WOW - YOU’VE JUST COMPLETED A DRAWING OF A HOUSE USING TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE!
Step 10: Continue to add other features to your house, like a door and windows, using your ruler and one vanishing point. Remember that the sides will be vertical (just like the sides of the house).
Step 11: If you wish, you may add a fence and/or sidewalk(s), using one vanishing point at a time.
Step 12: Erase all extra lines.
Step 13: Using watercolor pencils, darken lines on the house and lightly color in your masterpiece. Add some scenery like sky, trees, flowers and grass or cactus and rocks.
Step 14: FINAL STEP Dip watercolor brush in water, then lightly wash over individual areas. Watercolor pencils will soften and blend. Make sure to rinse the brush between colors to avoid a brown muddy mess. Sign your artwork then glue to mounting paper. Congratulations - you’re done!
