Art History: Frank Lloyd Wright's Residential Designs

In this session, we will discuss the great American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and his designs for domestic spaces. We will explore Wright’s innovative, modern designs in his Prairie Style, Usonian, and concrete block homes, and we will analyze how he revolutionized domestic architecture in the United States. We will discuss his designs for his own homes, Taliesin East and Taliesin West. In addition, we will look at many of Wright’s pieces for the interior of those homes, such as stained glass windows, lamps and furniture, and how he combined them to create such inspiring pieces of architecture.
