Wright Virtual Visits 2022

Meier House Virtual Tour & Book Talk

In 2013, Chicagoans Michael Schreiber and Jason Loper went in search of a quaint little country house for weekend getaways. What they bought instead was a piece of architectural history some five hours outside of Chicago. In their eight years as stewards of the Delbert and Grace Meier House (designed 1915), an American System-Built Home in Monona, Iowa, Schreiber and Loper have documented the history of the home and its place in Wright’s canon of work. Join us for a talk that will include a preview of their forthcoming book, This American House: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Meier House and the American System-Built Homes.

Pre-order your copy of Schreiber and Loper’s book at your favorite local bookstore or on Amazon. Due to shipping delays, the release of the book has been pushed back to August, and pre-ordering may not be available. Please bookmark it and try again soon, or check for updates at thisamericanhouse.com

 

This live event took place on Thursday, July 29 for members of the Conservancy. We are pleased to make the recording public for anyone who would like to learn more about the Meier House!

Way Out and About Wright 2021

Murphy House Virtual Tour & Book Talk

Sunday, May 2
3:00 p.m. CDT
Via Zoom

When Frank Lloyd Wright decided to leave the American System-Built Homes out of his autobiographies, the heritage of almost 130 designs—and as many as 30 built houses—was called into question. Some were forgotten for half a century, and likely others are still lost. Join author Nicholas Hayes and his wife Angela on a virtual tour and presentation to see what can be learned when an orphaned house is rediscovered. The Elizabeth Murphy House is the last ASBH known to have been completed—Model 203, unearthed in 2015—and the protagonist in their new book Frank Lloyd Wright’s Forgotten House. This event will feature a look at the historic neighborhood context, a tour focusing on details of the home and a short reading of its history, as well as time for Q&A.

If you would like to pre-order a copy of the book, we encourage you to request it at your local independent bookstore. It can also be ordered online through bookshop.org.
