Show Me Frank Lloyd Wright

Many consider Frank Lloyd Wright to be America’s greatest architect. His “organic architecture” helped popularize open floor plans, light-filled rooms, and connections to nature, all still in demand today. In Missouri, Wright worked with forward-thinking families to design four unique houses; he also butted heads with building authorities while constructing a controversial church. Who were these Missourians on the cutting edge of architectural design, and why do Wright’s creations remain relevant nearly sixty years after his death? This talk will help you see Missouri’s buildings with new eyes.

This event is free and open to the public. The host organization appreciates registrations to attend the Zoom session. The event will also live-stream on Facebook.
