FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
All lectures are at 7pm in the Lecture Hall.
The design series is sponsored by Southwest Chapter AIA Wisconsin, Monona Terrace, and Frank Lloyd Wright Wisconsin.
The Wright Design Series was inspired by master architect Frank Lloyd Wright who, although known for his architectural designs, also created designs in furniture, clothing, textiles and tableware. The free lectures and discussions highlight a wide array of design topics including architecture.
“Marshall Erdman and ‘Wrightification’ in Madison”
Professor, UW Madison Department of Art History
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 ways 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.
Here's what some past participants had to say:
“We salute your broader scope and found the presentations all excellent!” - Greg B., Madison
“Loved the whole experience! Wonderful people!” - Betsy H., Monona
What is PechaKucha? The concept is simple: Each presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece. It’s an event that is never the same twice, so leave your expectations at the door. Monona Terrace is proud to serve as the official Madison site for PechaKucha International. Cash bar on site.
