SYMPOSIUM
NOW WHAT ARCHITECTURE?
THU, MAY 14, 4 pm
FRI, MAY 15, 10:30 am

In his 1931 Kahn Lecture at Princeton University, Frank Lloyd Wright posed the captivating question: “Now what architecture?” Over the course of his 70-year career, Wright taught his contemporaries how to connect time, place, and people through architecture. Today—fifty years after his death in 1959—Wright’s question forms the basis for this two-day symposium, which features debates among scholars, architects, designers, and cultural critics from around the world.

Margo Stipe (b. Ann Arbor, Michigan), curator and registrar of collections at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives, and Eric Lloyd Wright (b. 1929, Los Angeles), architect and grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, discuss the current relevance and applicability of Wright’s spatial solutions for creating environments that enrich daily life, encouraging meaningful reengagement with the world around us.

Winka Dubbeldam (b. Strijen, The Netherlands) principal at Archi-Tectonics, rethinks, reinvestigates, and reinterprets everything in the built environment.

CHRISTIAN WASSMAN, MON, JUL 13, 6:30 PM
Christian Wassman (b. 1974, Lucerne) runs a studio in New York City that focuses on designs from furniture to installations to architecture. His East Village radio station shows how even interior design at the smallest scale can influence the streetscape of a city.

PANEL
THE ARCHITECTURE OF WRITING: WRIGHT, WOMEN, AND NARRATIVE
WED, JUN 10, 6:30 pm

Moderator: Sarah Goldhagen, The New Republic
Participants: Carol Gilligan, Beverly Willis, and Gwendolyn Wright

Honoring Taliesin Fellow Lois Gottlieb, this special program features the premiere of A Girl Is a Fellow Here: 100 Women Architects in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright, a new 15-minute documentary film produced by the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation. A panel discussion follows exploring definitions of architectural genius in which collaboration, in general, and women, in particular, assume greater stature in the remarkable history of Frank Lloyd Wright and in the rich history of American architecture.

LECTURE
THE GUGGENHEIM: PLACE AND TIME IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT
SAT, JUN 20, 11 am, Free with museum admission

Gail Satler, Professor of Sociology, Hofstra University, New York

In considering the relevance and significance of Wright’s works in a global landscape, it is not about the erasure of difference, but rather, it is about delving into the local language in order to have a more universal conversation. This lecture expands upon Wright’s “Destruction of the Box” to explore how the grid becomes the tension between individual and collective identity. In this way, the Guggenheim reflects the essence of what makes a work relevant—especially in the international city of New York.

FILM SCREENINGS
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT: THE MIKE WALLACE INTERVIEWS
FRIS, MAY 22–AUG 21, beginning on the hour, 11 am–4 pm
New Media Theater, Free with museum admission

While in New York for the construction of the Guggenheim Museum, 90-year-old Frank Lloyd Wright was invited to be a guest on The Mike Wallace Interview. This intimate portrait of Wright, captured just two years before his death in 1959, demonstrates his character and charisma at the end of his historic career.
