Wright and Like 2015: Madison

9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday's Wright and Like tour, "Frank Lloyd Wright and His Apprentices," highlights Wright’s Usonian houses and Taliesin Fellowship-related architectural riches in the Madison and Middleton, WI area. Saturday's event features interior tours of three private homes by Frank Lloyd Wright and five private homes by some of his finest apprentices: Edgar Tafel, Herb Fritz, William Wesley Peters, John Howe, and Herb DeLevie. Most of these homes have rarely, if ever, been available for touring.

Complementing these homes are two of Wright's outstanding public buildings: The First Unitarian Society Meeting House and Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center. This tour tells the story of the relationships and connections between these sites, their owners, Frank Lloyd Wright, the fellowship he founded, and its successor firm, Taliesin Associated Architects.

Friday’s special event at the Wisconsin Historical Society sets the stage for the Saturday tour. Both the pre-World War I American System-Built initiative and the Usonian houses represent Wright's continuous attempt to develop and employ building and design systems that strived to lower building costs, promote the honest use of materials, and liberate the space within.
