Panelists will explore the dynamic relationship between the media and architecture
as well as Wright’s historic place in the field of architectural writing by looking
at some of his most critically important works, to include:

“The Art and Craft of the Machine,” 1901

“In the Cause of Architecture,” 1908

The Disappearing City, 1932

The Natural House, 1954

A Testament, 1957

Within this context, how have critics responded to Wright’s architecture in the 100+ years
ince he designed his first building and what is the state of his reputation today?
