‘Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive’
The architecture curator Barry Bergdoll “decided,” writes Martin Filler about the latest exhibition of Frank Lloyd Wright at the Museum of Modern Art, “to organize this sesquicentennial tribute around a mere twelve projects, including rarely discussed unexecuted designs such as Wright’s Depression-era plans for a self-sufficient agricultural community and his postwar scheme for the world’s tallest skyscraper. These and others are illuminated by some 450 drawings, documents, photographs, models, and architectural fragments selected from the mountain of objects obtained by MoMA and Columbia’s Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library when they took possession of the architect’s archives from the economically troubled Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in 2012.”
