Goldsmith Talks: Is Frank Lloyd Wright Still Relevant?
April 5, 2017
The University of Texas at Austin, School of Architecture
William Allin Storrer, Ph.D. is an adjunct professor at The University of Texas and a noted scholar of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In this talk, Storrer presents a variety of topics based on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, copiously illustrated with familiar images and many new items not known as Wright work.
The topics of the talk range from Wright’s designs based on abstracting client’s character to designing incognito. During the question and answer session, Storrer will have available hundreds of images and plans of all Wright’s built work. “Goldsmith Talks” is an open-format series of presentations organized by UTSOA faculty, staff, and students. Goldsmith Talks aims to encourage and promote presentations that are outside of the scope of the main lecture series. Examples are: invited seminar presentations, book talks, lectures by designers and scholars who may be in Austin for another engagement, round-table discussions, film screenings, product demonstrations, or any other activity related to research, scholarship, and teaching activities and at the school. The format provides a platform for encouraging the dissemination of work by visitors and members of our community. The goal is to raise awareness, increase access, and better integrate such events within the public life of the school.
