As part of the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward, which showcases 64 of the pioneering architect’s projects, the Guggenheim commissioned new animations of Wright’s unrealized projects to give viewers a better sense of how his spaces are organized. Harvard University Graduate School of Design student David Saladik explains how working on the animations for Wright’s Huntington Hartford Sports Club/Play Resort, Los Angeles, 1947, and the Living City, 1958, showed him Wright was ahead of his time formally, in his rethinking of the way cities function and for his progressive social agendas. Saladik also finds contemporary relevance in Wright’s combination of simple geometric forms to create complex structures.
