After Wright: Tracing Frank Lloyd Wright’s Influence in Europe and the United States
April 8, 2017
The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture’s contributions to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s celebration of the 150th anniversary of Wright’s birth consist of three symposia. The first symposium is “After Wright: Tracing Frank Lloyd Wright’s Influence in Europe and the United States.”
The event will discuss Frank Lloyd Wright’s widespread influence on architecture. In his seven decades of practice, he transformed how buildings were designed, drawn, and conceived in most of the world. This symposium will focus on four areas where the effect of his work was pronounced, though not always appreciated. Tracing lines of effect through the Netherlands, Eastern Europe, the Bay Area and Arizona, the four speakers will show the ways in which Frank Lloyd Wright left a lasting imprint in those areas, helping to open up architecture to new vistas and possibilities.
Speakers and areas of focus include Aaron Betsky (The Netherlands), Ladislav Zikmund-Lender (Eastern Europe), Paul Turner (The Bay Area), and John Meunier (Arizona). The event will begin at 3:00 pm and run until 7:00 pm.
The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture is happy to offer these intimate lectures free to the public, by reservation, with the generous support of the Rio Salado Architecture Foundation, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, and the Arizona Community Foundation. Space is limited.
