At Pinacoteca Agnelli in Turin, an exhibition on one of the legends of 20th-century architecture

Turin,  28 March – 1 July 2018

 

Through photographs, objects, catalogues, lithographs and original drawings, the exhibition at Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli explores the thinking of Frank Lloyd Wright on the theme of organic architecture, starting from his first trip to Italy in 1910 and extending to his last visit to the country in 1951. The accent is on his engagement in the debate on architecture, urban planning and landscape in Italy.

The exhibition itinerary features sections that explore the different types of buildings – houses, museums, office buildings and skyscrapers – where iconic works like Fallingwater and the Guggenheim Museum of New York are presented alongside less famous designs.

 

The exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright tra America e Italia, curated by Jennifer Gray, is presented by the Avery Architectural & Fine Arts Library, Columbia University, in collaboration with the Miriam & Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University.
