100 Women Architects in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright and Marion Mahony Reconsidered

Since 2017 marks Frank Lloyd Wright's 150th birthday, we take the opportunity to suggest a new look at a central figure in his early practice.  Architect Marion Mahony was Wright's first employee, working in his studio from 1895-1909.  When Wright decamped to Europe with Mrs. Cheney, he left Marion in charge of his separate studio within the practice of Herman von Holst.  Follow her career beyond Wright's office, see how her talkent as an illustrator came to be a challenge for her credit as a designer.  More than merely a beautiful hand, Marion Mahony was a progressive thinker who made significant contributions to architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture in the US, Australia and India.
