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.
All Wright All Day Tour 06.26.16 8:30 a.m.-5:15 p.m.
Western New York affords visitors the rare opportunity to experience a variety of Wright's residential, functional, recreational, and monumental designs – both historic and newly constructed. Join us for this all-inclusive package which begins at historic Forest Lawn and proceeds by fully-enclosed, climate-controlled trolley to the Martin House Complex (1903-05) for an extended tour. The next stop is the Filling Station designed by Wright for Buffalo in 1927 and built in 2013 inside the Pierce Arrow Museum. Then it's on to the Fontana Boathouse (2007) on the Black Rock Canal for an in-depth tour. After a delicious catered lunch at the Boathouse the day continues with an extended tour of the Graycliff Estate (1926-31) and concludes with a return to Forest Lawn to visit the Blue Sky Mausoleum (2004).
A knowledgeable guide will be on hand to point out architectural treasures along the way including the site of the Larkin Administration Building (1904) and manufacturing buildings in an area now known as Larkinville.

FEATURED EVENT Preservation Master Plan for Taliesin West, a Lecture by T. Gunny Harboe, FAIA
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation recently released the Preservation Master Plan for Taliesin West, a U.S. National Historic Landmark, which was established in 1937 as Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home and studio, and the campus of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. As part of the Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer lecture series, T. Gunny Harboe, preservation architect and founder of Chicago-based Harboe Architects, and the plan's primary author, joins us to present the major points of the Taliesin West plan. Harboe has overseen preservation of some of Wright's most significant sites, including the Robie House and Unity Temple. His lecture will be introduced by Barry Bergdoll, Curator, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art, and Carole Ann Fabian, Director, Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University. The lecture will be followed by a Q&A.
