WRITE | WRIGHT: Architectural Criticism Today
Friday, October 13, 2017 | 6:30 - 8:00 PM | Greatbatch Pavilion
In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birth, the Martin House will present a panel discussion with leading design critics who will examine Wright’s key architectural writings and the state of architectural criticism today.
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 since he designed his first building and what is the state of his reputation today?
