Making History - Frank Lloyd Wright at the Global Crossroads: Chicago/Tokyo/NYC/LA


Ken Tadashi Oshima
, president of the Society of Architectural Historians and Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington, discusses with Chicago Architecture Biennial Artistic Directors Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee the global design practice of Frank Lloyd Wright in "making history" in the contemporary context. Building on new findings from the 2017 Museum of Modern Art exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, the discussion with Johnston and Lee will focus on precedents and parallels with the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
