New York City Week: Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th Birthday Celebration

 

Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the, if not the most prolific and influential architects in American architecture history. Today marks the 150th anniversary of his birth, which is marked throughout the country, in New York Museum of Modern Art will open ”Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive.” An exhibition I for one is really looking forward to seeing, it includes drawings, models, films, and photographs from Wright’s archives.

If you happen to be in Phoenix, you should check out one of Wright’s finest late houses, the David and Gladys Wright House (designed in 1950 for one of his sons), has been rescued from demolition. A house that shows Wright’s late-career obsession with ramps and curving shapes, which would culminate in the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Speaking of the Guggenheim. If you are not in New York to experience the magnificent museum yourself, you can get the new and improved 744-piece Lego version of the iconic building.

    The exhibition is great and worth seeing. Favorite houses are The Turkel house and Fallingwater. I almost bought the Lego version when I visited the Guggenheim in June 😉
