Select Thursdays in June, July and August at 2 p.m.
In recognition and commemoration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th anniversary of his birth and Wright’s remarkable contribution to domestic design, Fallingwater is presenting series of lectures in 2017 that focus on Wright’s homes and philosophy of organic architecture as sources of inspiration.
Visitors will learn more about the homes Wright designed for himself and how he used each to explore new ideas that would inform his other works. Plus, visitors will have the opportunity to obtaining a deeper understanding of the union of art and nature. Our summer lecture series takes place on Thursdays through August at 2 p.m. in the Hillman Education Pavilion located in the Visitors Center.
On view in the Speyer Gallery May through December 2017
Wright's three most personal designs—a home and studio in Oak Park, Illinois; a rural Wisconsin estate, Taliesin; and an Arizona desert sanctuary, Taliesin West—reflected an evolution of his organic architecture principles over a span of seven decades. You can visit this year's exhibition, "Wright for Wright," in Fallingwater's Speyer Gallery. Explore the important design aspects of each of Wright's homes as well as their function within Wright’s life and legacy.
