Art of Architecture Lecture
Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House: a New Perspective

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

5:30 p.m. Reception, 6 p.m. Lecture

Jeff Shannon, former dean of the Fay Jones School of Architecture, will be the first speaker in Architecture and Design Network's 14/15 lecture series. The title of Shannon's talk is "Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House: a New Perspective". The Robie House, now a museum, was built on what was then the edge of the University of Chicago campus. 

Completed in 1910, the house Wright designed for Frederick C. Robie is the consummate expression of his Prairie style. The house is conceived as an integral whole—site and structure, interior and exterior, furniture, ornament and architecture, each element is connected. Unrelentingly horizontal in its elevation and a dynamic configuration of sliding planes in its plan, the Robie House is the most innovative and forward thinking of all Wright’s Prairie houses.

Sponsors of the series inlcude the Arkansas Arts Center, Fay Jones School of Architecture and the Central Arkansas chapter of the AIA.
