NEW! Frank Lloyd Wright’s love affair with the Western part of the United States embodied a symbolic interaction between art, humans, and nature in his buildings. Moved by an environment so different from the context of his earlier works, he conceived works in the states of Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. From his choice of concrete block construction to his utilization of natural desert forms, his Western work constitutes a continuation of his forms of the grammar of the built environment. Through lecture and slide illustration, this course explores the architecture and interiors of the 50-year period that Wright worked in the West, set against the backdrop of his personal life and the stories behind these structures.
