The 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth is cause for celebration. Through 2018, events around the country will commemorate Wright as a singular force in the world of architecture and design. These jubilations provide a unique opportunity to reevaluate Wright’s work and ideas, and in this spirit, Metropolis Senior Editor Samuel Medina will moderate a panel discussion between Jennifer Gray, co-curator of Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive at MoMA, and Stuart Graff, President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Rather than adopt an overly retrospective bent, this discussion will touch on connections between the Wright’s work— buildings, designs, writings—and the current thinking about design, sustainability and culture, among other topics.
4:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.
