FEATURED EVENT Frank Lloyd Wright's SAMARA: A Mid-Century Dream Home
Wright on the Inside
It's not easy to encapsulate 16 speakers and 11 Wright-designed houses but for those of you who missed the Conservancy's annual conference, Wright on the Inside, summaries of all three days (plus the post-conference tour) are now available.
The Conservancy learned recently that a new buyer for the A. D. German Warehouse (1916-1921) had stepped forward from among the residents of Richland Center, Wisconsin. The property was purchased from the estate of Harvey Glanzer and closed on August 15. The new owner will be working with a group of Richland Center citizens and institutions who are organizing to develop plans for strategic and financial planning, fundraising, restoration, partnering on adaptive use and future operations. The Conservancy began an initiative in May 2012 to chart a path for a new owner and a new future for the Warehouse, bringing together a group of interested parties and local citizens. The current steering committee includes several individuals from this group.
Don't miss your opportunity to join the Conservancy on Saturday, July 13 for a tour of Bruce Goff's incomparable Ford House. Sidney Robinson, longtime owner and professor emeritus of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and University of Illinois at Chicago, will be present to talk about the house and answer questions. Light food and refreshments for the afternoon will be provided.
