2357 - Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man and his Architecture
The American Institute of Architects hailed him as the “greatest American architect of all time.” Frank Lloyd Wright had great contempt for the American Institute of Architects; yet, he would have agreed with their assessment of him. He compared himself to Michelangelo. He was a romantic intellectual who was opinionated, eccentric, and arrogant. He was an author, philosopher, and teacher. He loved fast cars, custom-made clothing, intelligent women, and Beethoven symphonies. His legacy, beyond architecture, includes films, plays, books, and a Simon and Garfunkel song about him. His designs grace retail shelves on countless items including toys, clothing, pillows, neckties, wristwatches, and napkins. Join us as we examine his philosophy of organic architecture and his colorful life. His residential designs include Fallingwater, called the “greatest home ever designed." Slides, videos, and handouts will highlight his designs of homes, places of worship, civic and business buildings, including the Guggenheim Museum, the Johnsons Wax headquarters, and the Marin County administrative complex.
