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.
