THE ARCHITECTURE OF BRUCE GOFF, 1904-1982: DESIGN FOR THE CONTINUOUS PRESENT. Ed. by Pauline Saliga and Mary Woolever. Art Institute of Chicago, 1995. Published in association with Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 120 pp. with 182 ills. (33 col.). 31 x 24 cm. LC 95-6874 ISBN 379131453X In English.
Surveying the individualistic oeuvre of American architect and educator Goff, whose chiefly residential designs are distinguished by his use of unconventional materials and his inventive integration of organic and geometric forms, this catalogue features drawings and photographs of 16 notable projects along with an illustrated checklist of the more than 130 houses and commercial and institutional structures completed by Goff from 1919 to 1980. Six essays include a critical overview of Goff's career, a discussion of the relationship of his work as a composer of music to his architectural vision, and examinations of his early achievements in Chicago (1934-1942) and his influence as a teacher at the University of Oklahoma in the late 1940s and the 1950s.
