Name: Our Stories- Frank Lloyd Wright and a New Vision for Chandler
Date: January 19, 2019
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM MST
American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright spent time in Chandler from the late 1920s through the mid 1930s working on various projects in and around Chandler. While most of these projects never came to fruition, his vision for Chandler and the surrounding area was inspired by the desert and its unique landscape. This talk will cover various Wright projects in Chandler, including the San Marcos on the Desert and Broadacre City, and incorporate the correspondence between Dr. AJ Chandler and Wright which sheds light on their decision process and the missed opportunities. This program will be held at the Chandler Museum, 300 S. Chandler Village Drive. Our Stories presents diverse speakers who share unique Arizona and local history topics to a general audience throughout the year. This series is produced by the Chandler Public Library and the Chandler Museum, with support from the Friends of the Chandler Public Library and the Chandler Historical Society.
