Western New York affords visitors the rare opportunity to experience a variety of Wright's residential, functional, recreational, and monumental designs – both historic and newly constructed. Join us for this all-inclusive package which begins at historic Forest Lawn and proceeds by fully-enclosed, climate-controlled trolley to the Martin House Complex (1903-05) for an extended tour. The next stop is the Filling Station designed by Wright for Buffalo in 1927 and built in 2013 inside the Pierce Arrow Museum. Then it's on to the Fontana Boathouse (2007) on the Black Rock Canal for an in-depth tour. After a delicious catered lunch at the Boathouse the day continues with an extended tour of the Graycliff Estate (1926-31) and concludes with a return to Forest Lawn to visit the Blue Sky Mausoleum (2004).

A knowledgeable guide will be on hand to point out architectural treasures along the way including the site of the Larkin Administration Building (1904) and manufacturing buildings in an area now known as Larkinville.

6:30 p.m.
Frank Lloyd Wright was exposed to the idea of synthesis—music and architecture—long before he was actually engaged in architectural practice. As a young boy, Wright began to think about design with the experience of listening to his father playing Bach and Beethoven into the night, prompting him to comment years later that "a symphony is an edifice of sound." Through this early stimulus, Wright came to envision a total embodied architecture, one in which all the senses—especially vision, touch, sound and kinesthetic—were engaged and mutually supported one another.

Jack Quinan is Martin House Curator Emeritus and a member of the Board of Directors of the Martin House Restoration Corporation. He is a founding member of the Frank Lloyd Wright.
