Frank Lloyd Wright Fiona Rose Wednesday 20 February 2019

Frank Lloyd Wright is recognised as one of the most important architects of all time. He was a genius who believed he was destined to redesign the world.  Over the course of his long career he designed over 800 buildings, including revolutionary structures such as The Guggenheim Museum, Fallingwater, the Johnson Wax Building and Taliesin. Wright’s architectural achievements were often over shadowed by his turbulent private life. In his 92 years he fathered 7 children, married three times and suffered great personal tragedy.  This illustrated talk provides an overview of his work, personal life and most iconic buildings.
