Rare Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation footage from 1958.
This video shows Frank Lloyd Wright on his birthday, viewing students' box projects. The box projects were an opportunity for apprentices to create hand-crafted, artistic expressions independent of the day-to-day work of architectural drafting and design. The boxes became tokens of appreciation that were given to Frank Lloyd Wright twice every year (on his birthday and Christmas). The tradition carried over to his wife, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright, after Wright's death in 1959. Today, students of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture present a modern day version of the project each year during juried reviews of their work.
