Course Description

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 agreed with their assessment of him. Wright 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, and intelligent women. His legacy, beyond architecture, includes films, plays, books, and a Simon & Garfunkel song about him. His designs grace retail shelves on clothing, pillows, neckties, and wristwatches. His residential designs include Fallingwater, called the “greatest home ever designed.” Join us as we examine his philosophy of organic architecture and his colorful life. Slides, videos, and handouts will highlight his designs of homes, places of worship, and civic and business buildings, including the Guggenheim Museum, SC Johnson's headquarters, and the Marin County administrative complex. Lecture (plus Questions) Viewing Videos
