Restoring Wright Buildings to their Rightful Brilliance
Gunny Harboe of Harboe Architects will give an inside view of the processes used in the restoration of two of Frank Lloyd Wright’s gems: Unity Temple in Oak Park and Chicago’s Robie House. He will focus on the interiors of these early masterworks of Wright’s Prairie School period. Harboe will discuss how, through a detailed and disciplined process of forensic investigation and the development of full-scale mockups, the subtle beauty of these spaces is being brought to life once again.
Presented in conjunction with The Frederick Law Olmsted Society.iCal
