Rethinking Frank Lloyd Wright, just published by the University of Virginia Press, explores the position Wright holds in modern architectural thinking. Join its editors, architectural historians Neil Levine and Richard Longstreth, in conversation with Janet Parks as they discuss these historical and critical essays by leading scholars on Wright’s relationships with fellow architects and critics, and his influence on historic preservation. The book is based on the proceedings of the Conservancy’s 2017 annual conference, coinciding with the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition, Frank Lloyd Wright: Unpacking the Archive, which marked the completion of the transfer of the Wright archive to the Avery Library, Columbia University and the Museum.

Speakers:
Neil Levine, Emmet Blakeney Gleason Professor Emeritus of the History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University
Richard Longstreth, Professor of American Civilization, George Washington University
