Frank Lloyd Wright and the World
Marking the centennial of the completion of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in 1923, this retrospective of the architectural work by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) explores this central attribute of his oeuvre. Wright was notable for his efforts to integrate unique elements of culture from Japan and other Asian countries, and from Mesoamerica and the Indigenous groups of North America, with European influences and his own architectural vocabulary. Human culture, in its many hues and forms, was central to Wright’s organic architecture, respecting as it did the unique circumstance of when and where a building was constructed, who would inhabit it, and how it would be used.
