From Frank Lloyd Wright’s clever manner of naming things, to his “artful self-presentation,” the architect channeled the power of branding, especially with his iconic red square.

Each week for #WrightVirtualVisits, two Frank Lloyd Wright sites will be paired up to go live – side by side – on Facebook. The short videos will focus on a particular theme, comparing and contrasting how that theme is expressed in Wright’s design at each site. We’ll take your questions via Facebook.

On Thursday, October 29, at 1pm Eastern/ 10am Pacific, tune in as the Allen House and Beth Sholom Synagogue explore the theme of Wright's Developing Style 1915-1959.

**NO REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for these FREE EVENTS!**

To tune in, go to the page of either site at the beginning of the event. You may need to refresh once or twice before the video stream appears.

Today marks the wedding anniversary for Frank Lloyd Wright & Olga (Olgivanna) Lazović. The couple were married in 1928 in Rancho Santa Fe, California. Olgivanna proved to be the partner and stabilizing influence Wright needed in order to refocus on “the cause of architecture” he had begun decades earlier.

“More and more light began to become the beautifier of the building – the blessing of its occupants.” - Frank Lloyd Wright

Join us live on Facebook tomorrow, August 20 at 10am Pacific / 12pm Central, for the launch of our newly revamped #WrightVirtualVisits beginning with Wright Virtual Visits: Taliesin West & Unity Temple. This virtual tour will compare and contrast the two sites side by side while we focus on Frank Lloyd Wright’s use of natural light in these two distinct spaces, and you will be able to ask questions in real time and share your thoughts on the subject too! We look forward to engaging in a great conversation with you.

This program is an amazing partnership between the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, Frank Lloyd Wright's Unity Temple Restoration Foundation, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and Wright sites across the country.

Frank Lloyd Wright would often take his previous designs and modify them to fit in another project. Here are two light fixtures. The sconce is similar to one in the Cabaret Theater in Taliesin West. The vertical lamp is similar to a floor lamp in both Taliesin and Taliesin West.

Beth Sholom light fixture tour

Spent a wonderful morning touring Beth Shalom and learning more of its history. This Frank Lloyd Wright designed building should be seen by anyone visiting Philadelphia.
