History of American Architecture: Frank Lloyd Wright
Tuesdays, February 14, through March 14, 2023 Virtual | 12:00pm-1:15pm EST Virtual and In-Person | 6:30pm-7:45pm EST Virtual via Zoom In-Person at Cranbrook Art Museum de Salle Auditorium Join Kevin Adkisson for the return of the Center’s popular History of American Architecture Lecture Series. The sixth annual installment will focus on the creativity and legacy of America’s most enduring architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Each week, the 75-minute, image-based lecture will examine and illuminate an aspect of Wright’s career. From the start of his apprenticeship in Chicago in 1887 to his death in Arizona in 1959, Wright designed some 1,114 architectural works—532 of which were built—and transformed what it meant to be an architect. This lecture series surveys Wright’s career chronologically, with each week starting from a single building as a case study. These five projects, all now accessible to the public, embody five distinct aspects of Wright’s philosophies, influence, and legacy.
