Lloyd Wright Home Tour

Postby Gamble House » Sun Apr 25, 2010 1:59 pm

Before Frank Lloyd Wright first built in Los Angeles, his eldest son, Lloyd Wright, moved to the city where he would practice architecture for the rest of his life. Lloyd Wright designed buildings and landscapes in the spirit of his father’s revolutionary ideas, but infused with the brash vitality of Southern California. From his spectacular houses of the 1920s to orchestral shells for the Hollywood Bowl to the celebrated Wayfarers Chapel, Lloyd Wright’s buildings are as theatrical as stage sets, yet his work remains underappreciated today.

Dana Hutt will highlight Wright’s efforts to create an architecture unique to Southern California, his experimentation with materials and new building technologies, and his most significant works in a career that spanned 6 decades.
