Our Most Distinguished Outcast: Frank Lloyd Wright and 'Wendingen'
01.01.16 to 02.16.16
This intimate library exhibition explores Wright’s relationship with and influence on early 20th-century Dutch avant-garde architecture. The editors and contributors to Wendingen, a magazine that ran from 1918 to 1932, saw in Wright the embodiment of their architectural goals: cohesive structures that seamlessly unite every aspect of a building’s design. Over seven issues, Dutch architects and other of Wright’s contemporaries praise him, his designs, and reveal to us their vision of a society as harmonious as the buildings it erects.

EVOLUTIONS AND ASSEMBLIES DAN WHEELER, FAIA
Wheeler presents the need for understanding the past to move things forward, which involves evolution and assembly not only of architecture but one’s own life. This is in part an individual reflection on the optimism of design practices, weaving in art, architecture and his own work, old and new where appropriate.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior
01.05.16 to 04.07.16
Recognized around the world for his innovative style and modern designs, architect Frank Lloyd Wright originated and popularized the concept that structures should exist in harmony with humanity and their environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. The concept extended not only to structures' exteriors, but also to the interiors, furnishings and ornaments - insisting that all parts should be as one. The exhibition is comprised of 28 framed works, including 20 reproduction drawings and eight photographs, representing Wright's most distinctive interiors.
