AROUND THE WRIGHT WORLD

Living in America: Frank Lloyd Wright, Harlem, and Modern Housing

The exhibition’s narrative takes the form of two interwoven plotlines, developed through displays of project-specific drawings, photographs, and other material dating from the late 1920s to the late 1950s. One plotline tracks the Broadacre scheme as it plays out in Wright’s subsequent work, scattered around the country; the other tracks the development of public housing in Harlem, ending just outside the gallery, adjacent to Columbia’s new campus. Both stories connect social institutions, such as the nuclear family, with economic structures, such as private property or its alternatives. In Wright’s incompletely realized “American Dream” of exurban living we witness lines of race, class, and gender being drawn. Harlem’s public housing complexes draw similar lines. They also, however, acknowledge a right—the right to housing—that is actively forgotten in America today.

Wright for Wright Exhibition: The Experimental Architecture of Wright’s Homes

In his 1953 book The Future of Architecture, Wright famously declared, “Every great architect is—necessarily—a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.” The poetry of Wright’s architecture drew from nature and his three most personal designs—a home and studio in Oak Park, Illinois; a rural Wisconsin estate, Taliesin; and an Arizona desert sanctuary, Taliesin West—reflected an evolution of his organic architecture principles over a span of seven decades. Each home encapsulated differing roles for Wright as a designer, teacher, writer or businessman where living and working were often simultaneous activities. Wright for Wright explores the important design aspects of each home as well as their function within Wright’s life and legacy. This exhibition will be on view in the Speyer Gallery at Fallingwater from April 1 through Dec. 2017.
