What Is Organic Architecture, Anyway?
Available June 15, July 20 and August 17 at 2 p.m.
Drawing inspiration from nature, Frank Lloyd Wright developed a philosophy of “organic architecture” that informed his design process, from buildings to the complete interior. Yet Wright was not alone in this endeavor, with other architects also using organic analogies to describe their own work. This lecture will discuss Wright’s definition or organic architecture, placing it within twentieth-century architectural history and exploring how it has defined his legacy.
