SUMMARY

This exhibition of high-quality reproduction drawings of interiors, furnishings, and household objects offers a view into Frank Lloyd Wright’s creative conception of the interior spaces of his houses. In Wright’s house designs, structure and ornament are one. Every feature of the house—from the overall structure, to the interior, down to the smallest details and objects—was conceived by Wright from the beginning as a single idea.

Wright’s approach to visual enrichment as “organic ornament” grew out of his belief that the visual character of a form—whether an entire house or a lampshade—is integral to the structure of the object. Exploring the distinctive visual, sensory, and expressive quality of Wright’s interiors, Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior reveals how the architect’s distinctive abstract and geometric structures permeate the spaces and objects within.

Ideal for limited-security venues, such as small museums and libraries, this exhibition of reproduced works and photographs allows access to the immediacy of the architect’s creative process without damaging the light-sensitive original drawings.

“But perhaps as much as his genius as a stylist and designer, Wright is so well-known due to his longevity and productivity. His designs resulted in 532 completed works…”

- Mike Brewster,

“Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”

- Frank Lloyd Wright
