Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior presents the lesser-known aspects of his designs, focusing on the furnishings and ornamentation of his revered spaces. This exhibition features high-quality reproduction drawings of interiors, furnishings, and household objects, which offer insight into Wright’s inception of a grand idea down to the smallest details and objects.
Wright’s approach to visual enrichment as “organic ornament” grew out of his belief that the visual character of a form—whether an entire house or a lampshade—is integral to the structure of the object. Exploring the distinctive visual, sensory, and expressive quality of Wright’s interiors, Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior reveals how the architect’s distinctive abstract and geometric structures permeate the spaces and objects within.
