    The International Influence of Frank Lloyd Wright – Residential Architecture in Sydney in the 1950s and 1960s | Selected Topics in Architecture

    Tuesday, March 14 | 6 PM

    David Brashear, Architectural Historian

    The International Influence of Frank Lloyd Wright – Residential Architecture in Sydney in the 1950s and 1960s

    Following World War II, architects in Australia redoubled their efforts to find an architecture that was expressive of what it meant to be Australian. Many architectural students traveled abroad to study and to see important modern architecture in person. Some architects looked to the International Style, but others embraced an aesthetic that was more regional and organic in its roots, and clearly derivative of Frank Lloyd Wright. This lecture will trace the work of several architects operating in the suburbs of Sydney and the impact of Wright on their residential work.

    Presented by MCV Foundation and VCU Health.

    The Domestic Influence of Frank Lloyd Wright – Taliesin and the Evolution of the Work of E. Fay Jones | Selected Topics in Architecture

    Tuesday, April 11 | 6 PM

    Ed Pease, Professor of Architecture, The College of William and Mary

    The Domestic Influence of Frank Lloyd Wright – Taliesin and the Evolution of the Work of E. Fay Jones | Selected Topics in Architecture

    Architect E. Fay Jones, FAIA (1921- 2004) was the rare apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright who went on to have a distinguished practice of his own, winning the American Institute of Architects Gold Medal in 1990, and his Thorncrown Chapel was named 4th on the AIA's list of most influential buildings of the 20th century. This lecture will examine the influence of Wright on Jones' work, the evolution of his own architectural vocabulary that eventually took him beyond the strictures of Wright's influence, and how the success and acclaim of Thorncrown Chapel presented him with unexpected challenges in the final years of his career.

    Presented by MCV Foundation and VCU Health.
