The Edgar Kaufmann House, 1935 – 1938

This house sums up Frank Lloyd Wright and his driving force of “Organic Architecture”. FLW would ask his students this:

“Can you say when your building is complete, that the landscape is more beautiful than it was before?”

And the tie to Williams. Robert Fordyce ’56, on the occasion of our 50th Reunion, donated his collection of FLW ephemera to the Chapin Library. It contains over 8000 pieces and is the largest collection of FLW ephemera in public or private hands.

Here is the program of the opening exhibition of the collection.

A major exhibition “Unpacking the Archive” is on view at the MOMA June 12 – October 1.

 

Williams v Amherst note:

 

Alas, the only FLW project in Massachusetts is a Usonian House located in Amherst and built for Professor Theodore Baird in 1940.
