Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: The Architect in Princeton

In honor of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday this June, this exhibition features architectural drawings by Wright from the Historical Society’s collection, telling the story of Wright’s sole Princeton clients and the Frank Lloyd Wright house that could have been. Two drawings (an elevation and floor plan) will be on display at the Updike Farmstead through the end of 2017.

The Historical Society of Princeton is just one of many sites currently honoring Frank Lloyd Wright in his 150th year. Often considered America’s greatest architect, Wright designed over 1,000 structures throughout his seven-decade career. Only 532 of these designs were ever completed, but they include some of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century, such as Fallingwater and the Guggenheim Museum.
