In its second year funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art, Origins and Influences invites renowned authors and scholars – experts in their respective fields – to discuss the international exchange of ideas among architects and designers at the dawn of the 20th century.
 
The following lectures will begin 6 p.m. at the Pritzker Auditorium in the Monroe Building, 104 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago:
 
Vienna 1910: A Survey of the City's Architecture and Design Scene during Frank Lloyd Wright's Visit, Thursday, July 17, 2014: When Frank Lloyd Wright visited Vienna in 1910, the city’s architectural avant-garde was deeply divided into two irreconcilable camps. An expert on fin-de-siècle Viennese architecture and design, speaker Christian Witt-Dörring will talk about the division that pitted the concept of Gesamtkunstwerk or Total Work of Art against an approach that dictated strict division of art and function.
 
Traditional Japanese Art as a Means to Organic Architecture, Thursday, August 7, 2014: From the early years of the 20th century through to the present day, the relationship between the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the traditional architecture of Japan has been a recurring source of discussion. Kevin Nute, professor of architecture at the University of Oregon, examines Wright's interest in traditional Japanese pictorial art in the context of his philosophy of “organic” architecture.
 
Frank Lloyd Wright and the Origins of the House as a Work of Art, Thursday, September 11, 2014: Frank Lloyd Wright, who embarked on his career in the waning years of the 19th century, was among the first to embody the concept of the artist-architect, orchestrating complete integration of the house – site and structure, interior and exterior, furniture, ornament and architecture. Wendy Hitchmough, head of Historic Buildings and Research at Historic Royal Palaces in London, traces the European roots of Wright’s most ambitious early houses.
