Frank Lloyd Wright Tour 2011

Architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867- 1959) was recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as “the greatest American architect of all time”. ‘Fallingwater’ is Wright’s great masterpiece. The house, which overhangs a waterfall, is the highlight of a tour of over 20 of Wright’s most important buildings. Others in the itinerary include the Guggenheim Museum, the House and Studio, Robie House, Unity Temple, Johnson Wax Building, Beth Shalom, Taliesin and Taliesin West. The tour also includes two outstanding examples of Wright’s modernist peers, Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and Philip Johnson’s Glass House. Malcolm Carver, a Sydney architect, will lead a tour. The tour, which starts on October 6, 2011, is suitable for architects and anyone else interested in fine buildings.
