Seeing A New Perspective of Frank Lloyd Wright

Seeing A New Perspective of Frank Lloyd Wright

Tune in for Wright Sites x PechaKucha vol. 3 and take in a visual feast of the iconic architects work, presented by homeowners, curators and scholars.

In honour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 154th birthday, PechaKucha will once again present its special collaboration – Wright Sites x PechaKucha vol. 3. Eight speakers across the spectrum of academia, homeowners and curators will present in the traditional PechaKucha style of 20 image-based slides, that each progress after 20 seconds.

Wright Sites x PechaKucha was started in 2020 in collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy as a way to connect people around the world during the pandemic. The popularity and demand for seeing the famed architect in a new light has inspired this collaboration to continue.

The speaker line-up for vol. 3 includes:

Gilbert Adu-Boampong, “Inspired by Fallingwater”
Karen Ettelson, “Wright on Wheels. Saving Booth Cottage”
Helene Mansheim, “Beth Sholom Synagogue”
Kevin Nute, Wright’s Notion of Organic Form
Ayad Rahmani, “Frank Lloyd Wright and Ralph Waldo Emerson: Where architecture and literature unite in search of meaning.”
Kathryn Smith, “Harriet and Sam Freeman House: The California Dream”
Steve Sikora, “What color is Cherokee Red?”
Tim Totten “Frank Lloyd Wright Goes to Hollywood”

For those in Australia, the event will take place on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. AEST.
