Frank Lloyd Wright in Brick: The Evolution of the Masonry Prairie House in America
September 29, 2017
Presented by Patrick J. Mahoney, Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy
From Wright’s first independent commission in the 1890s, brick was an important building material. As the prairie house evolved, many elegant, fine-detailed homes featured brick as a major material. Join us at our first in a series of architecture-inspired talks as we trace the evolution of these elaborate homes, constructed and designed, from their Victorian beginnings to the refined prairie houses constructed around the time of World War I.
