Assistant Curator of Architecture and Design David van der Leer introduces Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward, an exhibition that illuminates Wright’s pioneering concepts of space and continuing relevance to contemporary architecture fifty years after the realization of his renowned design for the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Sixty-four projects, including private residences, public buildings, and unrealized urban mega-structures, are presented in the form of original drawings and historical materials, as well as new animations and 3-D models that have been commissioned to provide viewers with a better sense of how Wright’s spaces are organized. Aleksey Lukyanov-Cherny of Situ Studio, a Brooklyn-based design studio commissioned to create six models for the show, describes his team’s unique approach for modeling each project, an experience that showed them Wright was not just a theoretical architect but also a great builder.
