Frank Lloyd Wright
Never far from Controversy and a pithy one-liner, Frank Lloyd Wright is now rightly recognised as one of the giants of not just American but world architecture. The course will outline his architectural development and the professional and personal controversies that would cloud his career. Besides his building and flamboyant lifestyle, his impact upon generations of young architects and apprentices will also be examined and discussed. Mike Hope has travelled extensively around America visiting, lecturing about and running tours to many of his key works such as Falling Water, the Guggenheim Museum, Taliesin, Taliesin West, the Unity Temple, Wingspread, and homes in Illinois, Wisconsin, Arizona and California.
