A spectacular retrospective celebrating the 150th birth anniversary one of the world’s most prolific and visionary 20th century architects, will see 450 of Frank Lloyd Wright’s works from the 1890s through the 1950s. Organised by The Museum of Modern Art together with the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library in Columbia University, Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive is a major exhibition that will explore all facets of the architect’s avant-garde experimentation with new technology and materials, as well as his original ideas on nature, urban planning and social politics. The exhibition is composed in an anthology, divided into 12 sections comprising architectural drawings, models, films, building fragments, furniture and textiles. Some of the exhibits have never been shown publicly and make a rare appearance here.
In honour of the exhibition, The Peak takes a looks at some notable Frank Lloyd Wright structures that many still find inspirational and enthralling through their foresight, modernity and intelligence.
