Frank Lloyd Wright’s Legacy in San Diego: The Taliesin Architects
09.26.15 to 01.17.16
In the decades following World War II, those who had studied under architect Frank Lloyd Wright, in both Spring Green, Wisconsin and Scottsdale, Arizona through his Taliesin apprentice program, designed and built a fabulous array of structures throughout San Diego. Five of them – Vincent Bonini, Frederick Liebhardt, Loch Crane, Bill Slatton and Sim Bruce Richards – lived and/or established their architecture practices in San Diego. In addition to these focal studies, the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and his two sons Lloyd and John (the latter lived in Del Mar), as well as others heartily influenced by the Wright legacy - including Kendrick Bangs Kellogg - will be presented. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Legacy in San Diego: The Taliesin Architects will frame the remarkably rich portfolio of work with architectural drawings and models; period and contemporary photographs; as well as objects and ephemera. Case studies of these practitioners will demonstrate the power of Wright’s influence here. The show will display, for the first time in San Diego, Frank Lloyd Wright’s unbuilt designs in our region. Curated by Keith York.
