HIST 5133 WKSP: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School in the Midwest -- 1 unit(s)
This workshop will examine Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s most influential architect, and his role in the development of the Prairie School, an architectural movement of the early 1900s. Inspired by the flat Midwestern landscape, the Prairie School movement was significant in its departure from European architectural traditions and spoke to a changing nation. Prairie School architects considered this indigenous style an expression of the nation’s character, including American individualism, democratic ideals and an idealized interpretation of small-town America. Students will work closely with a diverse faculty of accomplished humanities scholars and educators, exploring this fascinating period in American history through lectures and tours.
