Restoring Wright Buildings to their Rightful Brilliance

Gunny Harboe, the renowned head of Harboe Architects, will give an inside view of the processes used in the restoration of two of Frank Lloyd Wright’s gems: the recently completed Unity Temple in Oak Park and the soon-to-begin Robie House in Chicago. He will focus on the interiors of these early masterworks of Wright’s Prairie School period. Harboe will discuss how, through a detailed and disciplined process of forensic investigation and the development of full-scale mockups, the subtle beauty of these spaces is being brought to life once again.
