"Marshall Erdman & 'Wrightification' in Madison,'" by Anna Andrzejewski
Wright Design Series w/ Anna Andrzejewski
7:00 PM, Lecture Hall
By the mid-twentieth century, architects and builders drew upon Frank Lloyd Wright's aesthetics to the degree that a widespread trend emerged, which Andrzejewski calls "Wrightification." This presentation focuses on one Wrightifier, Marshall Erdman, and the w ays in which he adopted and transformed elements from Wright's architecture in the postwar period. The speaker offers a fresh alternative to prevailing thought about postwar modernism and its supposed homogeneity.
