Frank Lloyd Wright and the City: Density vs. Dispersal

The first exhibition of the Frank Lloyd Wright archive, recently acquired by MoMA and Colombia University, explores the architect’s thinking about the rapid growth of American cities in the 1920s and 30s. At the heart of the exhibition is the 12ft by 12ft model for “Broadacre City” that the architect revised throughout his life. Projects on display will reveal the extent of FLW’s ideas about density and cities, including his designs for a mile-high tower in Chicago and St. Mark’s-in-the-Bouwerie Towers in New York.
