Here are links to a number of theses available online with a focus on
organic architecture.

In each case, the thesis title is followed by a link to an abstract,
and a second link to the full thesis.

Please let me know if there's anything else you need on this.



Architecture Alive: Buildings That Evolve in Response to Changing Needs     abstract     full thesis

SQUARING THE CIRCLE: The Regulating Lines of Claude Bragdon?s
Theosophic Architecture

A Nudist Resort

Architecture is Life... ...Life is Architecture
[there are numerous other files for this thesis, all at the abstracts link]

From The Ground up: Site-Specific Architectural Design From Analysis
of The Natural and Man-Made

Human-Driven Extensive Greenroof Design

Horizontal Forest: A Retreat on the AT


search strategy -- Used bookmarked links to collections of online
dissertations, and searched several of these for [ organic
architecture ] or [ fallingwater ]

Thanks for your answer. I would really appreciate it if you could
provide a couple more UK dissertations that focus more on the 'organic
architecture' subject

I'll see what I can do, although most of the online thesis material
that I am aware of seems to be from the US and Canada.

I was confused by your request that you want materials that focus
'more on the organic architecture subject'.

The links I provided all focus quite directly on organic architecture.
 If they are not meeting your needs, then please be a bit more
specific in how they are falling short, and what sort of materials
would be better suited for you.

The more I understand what you need, the better I can assist you.

Looking forward to your reply,

Hi Pafalafa-ga 

Thanks for your response. I am looking for dissertations that address
the Fallingwater example of the organic architecture. Only one of the
dissertations that you provided cross mention the 'fallingwater house'
I hope this clarify my questions. Do not hesisitate to ask if you have
further questions.

I've listed a few more dissertations, below, with a focus on
Fallingwater.  Since your original question specified an "and/or"
option, I didn't focus exclusively on Fallingwater in my original

Hopefully, these will fully meet your needs:

Focusing the Senses     abstract
ROUSE, MATTHEW ALLEN    full thesis
Alienation and architecture of counteraction

Let me know if there is anything more I can do for you on this.

Thank you Pafalafa. That's more like it. I understand that there are
not any full dissertations on the fallingwater alone. A few more
essays or may be long articles on the fallingwater as an example of
the organic architecture approach would be highly appreciated.

Although a great deal of literature has been written about
Fallingwater, not that much of it is available online.  I've included,
below, some scholarly articles (and one abstract) that you can access
In Fallingwater: Spatial structure at the scale of quasi-synchronic perception
Bossom Lectures on the making of great architecture. Pt.1: 'A sense of
the marvellous'-Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater.
MacCormac, R. 
RSA Journal. Vol. 143, no. 5463, pp. 40-51. Oct. 1995 
The Effects of Frank Lloyd Wright on Modern Architecture
Top-down and bottom-up characterisations of shape and space
Describing Shape and Shape Complexity Using Local Properties

If you have access to a research library, you may want to ask the
librarian to locate some of the additional works that are cited at
this link:

Hope that does the trick...
