This video is selected excerpts of Robin Hill's illustrated lecture exploring Wright's ideas of ‘Organic architecture’ through Hill’s own photographs, taken over an eight-year period from 2002-2008. He focuses on the interplay of light and shadow, the inter-connection between nature and architecture, and emphasizes the viewpoint that Florida Southern is not a peripheral Wright project but actually fundamental to the understanding of both his practice and philosophy of architecture.

Robin Hill was named 2011 Architectural Photographer of the Year by AIA Miami. His photographs have been featured in major exhibitions, including the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao. He has become well-versed in the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier, and is celebrated for his work exploring MiMo – the Mid-century Modern architecture of Miami. Hill was born in Nottingham, England, moved to Miami in 1992.

This lecture was one of a series presented over Deco Weekend 2013 -- a presentation of the Miami Design Preservation League in conjunction with the Wolfsonian.
