in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Organic Design


 In this talk, Gyure will discuss Frank Lloyd Wright’s unique approach to architectural design derived from his complex understanding of nature. He will explain how Wright’s theory of nature was manifested in actual landscapes and buildings through architectural elements such as porches, porticoes, terraces, windows, materials, and plantings, focusing on numerous examples from his long career, including Graycliff, Taliesin, and Florida Southern College.



       This lecture series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and with the cooperation of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center.

       Admission for each lecture will be $10; or $5 for Graycliff and/or Burchfield Penney Art Center members and volunteers.  No reservations are necessary.
