ONLINE: The American Institute of Architects hailed Frank Lloyd Wright as the greatest American architect of all time. He had great contempt for the American Institute of Architects. Yet he would have agreed with their assessment of him. He compared himself to Michelangelo. He was a romantic intellectual who was opinionated, eccentric and arrogant. He was an author, philosopher, teacher and lover of fast cars, custom made clothing, intelligent women and Beethoven symphonies. His legacy, beyond architecture, includes films, plays and books. Join us in this lecture-based course as we examine Wright's philosophy of organic architecture and his colorful life. His residential designs include Fallingwater, called the “greatest home ever designed.” Slides and videos will highlight his designs of homes, places of worship, and civic and business buildings, including the Guggenheim Museum, the Johnson Wax headquarters and the Marin County administrative complex. | Lecture + Q&A.
