Working from models found in nature, Frank Lloyd Wright’s design philosophy centered on the ideas of continuity and integration between building and landscape, interior and exterior, form and function, to create a beautiful and even spiritual experience of “being.” In doing so, Wright strived to create a Gesamtkunstwerk, which means “total work of art,” in his architecture through unified and simple design, contrasting from contemporary and highly decorative efforts to achieve the same impact found in the Art Nouveau, Jugendstil and Secession movements, among others.
This upcoming lecture, “A Total Work of Art: The Expression of Unity in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Designs,” supports Kirkland Museum’s exhibition, “Frank Lloyd Wright: Inside The Walls,” on view now through January 8th, 2023.
