Eric Lloyd Wright gave an illustrated talk, "Thoughts on My Grandfather" at the Ulrich Museum of Art on May 8, 2010.
Eric Lloyd Wright is a distinguished architect based in
Los Angeles and the grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, who gained initial acclaim in the early 20th century for houses characterized by strong horizontal lines that he likened to the Midwestern landscape and called his "prairie style." These homes are famous for blending the interior with the exterior. "The most satisfactory apartments,” he claimed, “are those in which most of the furniture has been built in as a part of the original scheme." The Allen-Lambe House and its furnishings in Wichita were completed in 1918 for the journalist and statesman Henry J. Allen and his wife, Elsie. Eric Lloyd Wright will talk about this house, prairie architecture, and his own work on architectural
projects with his grandfather and father, both highly original architects. Throughout, he will offer personal perspective on the life and work of his grandfather, an established genius in architectural history.
The presentation was a collaboration between the Ulrich
Museum of Art and the Allen-Lambe House Museum. The event is one of several to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this distinguished house museum.
