Overview

This lecture will feature John Waters, architect and preservation programs manager for the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. Mr. Waters' talk will focus on the Usonian house, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's great contributions to 20th-century architecture. With the Usonian house, Wright created a system of building that he would use, in one form or another, in all his residential designs from the 1930s to the late 1950s. Mr. Waters will discuss the unusual features of the Usonian house and illustrate how the Laurent House, an important example of this type of architecture, is, thanks to Ken and Phyllis Laurent’s unique requirements, both similar and different from other Usonian houses.
