with Alan Powers
2017 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the major figures in the transition between nineteenth and twentieth century architectural design and theory. Although Wright’s name is well known, and some of his buildings are major sites of cultural tourism, the interpretation of his work is continuously developing and changing. Alan Powers will describe some of these new insights, including Wright’s urbanism and his relationship to New York City in the Art Deco period, and ask how relevant his ideas are to today’s architecture and planning.
