Wright Before the "Lloyd" Wright Before the "Lloyd"

Mention the name Frank Lloyd Wright, and modern architecture immediately comes to everyone’s mind. But as a young Chicago architect of the 1890s, signing his work with a less dramatic “Frank L. Wright” his early work included many and diverse influences – some of which look back to classical antiquity, English tudor and other unexpected sources. This exhibit explores seldom discussed early projects that demonstrate how Wright’s path to becoming a modern architect had deep and far-reaching roots.
