Drawings of Frank Lloyd Wright are Copyright © The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin West, Scottsdale, AZ.
Highlights of Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward include newly created three-dimensional scale models that examine the internal mechanics of functional space in relation to exterior form in a variety of Wright's projects. Among these are an exploded version of the Herbert Jacobs House (Madison, Wisconsin, 1937); a mirrored model for Unity Temple; and a sectional model of Beth Sholom Synagogue (Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, 1953). Large-scale models of unrealized urban projects, including his Plan for Greater Baghdad (1957), the Crystal City for Washington, D.C. (1940), and the Pittsburgh Point Civic Center (1947), provide insight into Wright's visions for the landscapes of the city. In addition, special animations offer viewers the opportunity to experience an interpretation of nine of Wright's unbuilt or demolished projects as well as his own Taliesin and Taliesin West.
