The life and works of an architectural genius

Our commemorative tribute to America's greatest architect features every single design he produced from 1943 until his death. This is the first book in an exhaustive three-volume monograph featuring all of Wright's 1,100 designs, both realized and unrealized, and covers the postwar years and the "living architecture" period. Based on unlimited access to the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives in Taliesin, Arizona, this penetrating study gives an unrivalled overview of Wright's groundbreaking work and eventual "starchitect" status.


Starchitect or also stararchitect [star + architect] is a term used to describe architects whose celebrity and critical acclaim have transformed them into idols of the architecture world and may even have given them some degree of fame amongst the general public. Celebrity status is generally associated with avant-gardist novelty. Developers around the world have proven eager to sign up "top talent" (starchitects) in hopes of convincing reluctant municipalities to approve large developments, of obtaining financing or of increasing the value of their buildings. A key characteristic is that the architect's designs are almost always iconic and highly visible within the site or context.

What is an earthquake?
The Earth's crust, or lithosphere (hard outer surface) is made up of "tectonic plates", or large plates. There are about 7 major plates and many smaller plates, around 100 km thick, which sit upon a lower soft layer (the asthenosphere). When these plates move against each other along plate boundaries (where two plates meet) or along faults (a rift), an earthquake occurs. This may be through a variety of movements: sideways, up and down or apart...     More
 元々は俗ラテン語の tectonics(建築物の意)に由来する。
テクトニクスは造山運動安定陸塊等の地形の形成、火山帯における地震等に関連している。また、テクトニクスを理解する上では地形学侵食を理解しておくことも重要であり、これは鉱床学での石油金属鉱石の位置を特定するのに用いられる。その他にも、に関する天文学的な知識が要される。
昨今のテクトニクスにおける現象をネオテクトニクスとして分かつ考え方もある。これは構造地質学と領域が重なる部分もあるが、主に扱う現象の大きさによってこの2つは分かれている。また、テクトニクスから生まれた単語にはプレートテクトニクスが他の例としてあげられる。
