Unpacked Archives. On what would have been the 150th birthday of Frank Lloyd Wright, New York’s Museum of Modern Art opened an exhibit displaying not FLW’s most famous works, but some lesser-known, often unbuilt projects that America’s Architect had in his portfolio. The exhibit, which runs through October 1, came to MoMA after the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library at Columbia University acquired it from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in 2012. Architectural Record has a piece on unpacking the archive.
Frank Facts. We all know his famous designs and buildings, but some personal facts of Frank Lloyd Wright’s life are often forgotten. From his refusal to join the AIA to murders at his Taliesin estate and his son’s invention of the Lincoln Log, Architectural Digest has 10 interesting facts you may not have known about Frank Lloyd Wright.
For Sale. Over many decades, Frank Lloyd Wright created thousands of structures. Occasionally, some of the homes he designed pop-up for sale. TheSpaces.com showcases five of the most magnificent Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes currently on the market, including a $7.2 million home in Connecticut.
