Frank Lloyd Wright was a champion of organic architecture. His visionary designs emphasized the use of natural materials, harmonious integration of building and landscape and high functionality. Many concepts developed in Wright’s revolutionary work are central to today’s sustainable, green architecture movement.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century explores the tenets of Wright’s organic architecture – appropriateness to time, place and people – through the current perspective of green building; specifically, the concepts of energy, materials, site, climate, space efficiency, pre-fabricated technology, transportation and urban planning. It is the first exhibition to explore Wright and his relevance today through a survey of more than 40 projects, including his vision for the decentralized city, presented through rarely seen drawings, scale models, furniture, films and photographs.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and Milwaukee Art Museum in conjunction with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and opens at PhoenixArt Museum on December 18. The exhibition closes on April 29.
