Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior

The exhibition of high-quality reproduction drawings of interiors, furnishings and household objects offers a view into Frank Lloyd Wright’s creative conception of the interior spaces of his houses.  In Wright’s house designs, structure and ornament are one. Every feature of the house – from the overall structure, to the interior, down to the smallest details and objects – was conceived by Wright from the beginning as a single idea.


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. 


Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture of the Interior was organized by International Arts & Artists, Washington DC, in cooperation with The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Scottsdale, AZ. It is sponsored locally by Mason City Clinic, the John K. & Luise V. Hanson Foundation and Bergland + Cram Architects.
