The Unbuilt Visions of (Frank Lloyd) Wright

By Caryn James

Frank Lloyd Wright achieved pop-culture fame during his lifetime for some of architecture’s greatest hits, such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Fallingwater home in Pennsylvania. But what about the plans for a 510-story building in Chicago, a proposed school to train African-American teachers in Virginia and an inn on the edge of a meteor crater in Arizona?

These artifacts of never-realized projects will go on view June 12 as part of “Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive” at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The enormous exhibition—450 items overall, including drawings, building models, photographs and furniture—is the opposite of a greatest-hits roundup and a reminder that many of Wright’s visions remained on paper . . . .
