As Wright’s conceptions of “The Living City” developed across the decades, he came to see the automobile and modern means of communication as tools to rethink the historical tension between the city and the suburbs in American life. Detroit and our experiences with its urbanized landscape offer us a chance to examine the relationships of Wright’s work and legacy to historical and contemporary issues of American landscapes, cities and suburbs through a critical lens.

Through special events, talks, and tours of buildings by Wright and contemporaries, many not regularly open to visitors, our conferences build a community of knowledgeable, passionate advocates for the preservation of Wright’s nearly 400 extant buildings. Meet preservationists advocates, owners of Wright-designed houses, administrators of public sites, architects, scholars, and restoration specialists from around the world.

Registration will open in May.
