Join Anthony Alofsin, award-winning architect and recipient of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy Wright Spirit Award, as he discusses Wright’s work throughout the 1910s, during which time Taliesin, the Imperial Hotel, and the Bogk House, among others, were built. Discover what effect his travels to Europe in 1909–10 through to his return from Japan in 1922 had on his designs. This primitivist phase, previously unrecognized, was vibrant with experimentation.
Reception and book signing to follow.
This is the final lecture in a series that features Frank Lloyd Wright scholars, talking about issues related to place, people, and time—the three components Wright associated with his organic architecture. The series is being held in conjunction with the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century.
