FLWRIGHT: PROTECTION & PRESERVATION
Thursday, April 19 – 12:15 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Chicago Cultural Center, Claudia Cassidy Theatre, 77 E. Randolph Street, 2nd Floor, Chicago
The preservation of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright presents numerous challenges and opportunities. With nearly 400 extant buildings in three-quarters of the United States, Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most prolific American architects of the 19th and 20th centuries. Yet, as the recent demolition of the Lockridge Medical Clinic in Whitefish, Montana, shows, without proper protection, Wright’s work can be lost. John Waters, Preservation Programs Manager at the Chicago-based Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, will discuss the organization’s role in facilitating the protection and preservation of many of Wright’s buildings.
