Discover how Frank Lloyd Wright, usually known solely as an architect, considered the landscape as an integral element in his work. Panelists discuss how and why the work of Frank Lloyd Wright was sensitively integrated within their natural landscape settings and enhanced by their designed landscapes. The discussion includes several component buildings of the joint Frank Lloyd Wright World Heritage Site announced in 2019 as the first modern architecture designation in the United States, and the recently restored landscape of the Martin House. A reception follows the talk.

Panelists include: Mark Bayer, Bayer Landscape Architects, PLLC; Stuart Graff, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation; Jennifer Gray, Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, Columbia University; Justin W. Gunther, Falling Water; and moderator Stephen Morris, National Park Service.

This program is supported by the Darwina L. Neal Cultural Landscape Fund for adult programs focusing on cultural landscapes.
