Five eminent architecture scholars and practitioners will discuss “The Influence of Frank Lloyd Wright on
Modern Day Life and Architecture.” They will show how his impact upon architecture and design is evident
throughout the U.S. and indeed right here in Ann Arbor.

Opening the same day is a rare treat for Wright fans—an exhibit of 50 original artifacts, including the world renowned Fallingwater model, that will be on display starting November 7. It is the first time these models, drawings, decorative objects, windows, and photos from the private collection of Tom Monaghan have been displayed for 25 years.

Panelist Margo Stipe, Curator of Collections for the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona, notes that “Wright’s stunning designs for the very rare Coonley Playhouse windows in this exhibit played a critical role in achieving his belief that each architectural commission for a Prairie-era building should be a complete work of art.”

In addition to Stipe, the speakers are Robert Fishman, Interim Chair of University of Michigan’s architecture
program and urban history scholar; Anthony Gholz, retired vice-president of DiClemente Siegel Design, who
has lived in three Wright homes; Dale Allen Gyure, Professor of Architecture at Lawrence Technological
University, who focuses on the intersections of architecture, education, and society; and Tom Monaghan,
longtime Wright enthusiast who commissioned the design of Domino’s Farms Office Park in the style of
Wright.

Monaghan said, “Whether one realizes it or not, Frank Lloyd Wright’s impact on American architecture and
culture can hardly be understated. I was taken by his work when I was first exposed to it at age 12. I am
excited that this event will give the local community an opportunity both to see some original Frank Lloyd
Wright pieces— as well as hear from a wonderful panel of experts on the subject.”

Frank Lloyd Wright Event at Domino’s Farms, Earhart Road north of Plymouth Road, at 6:00 p.m., Thursday, November 7, followed by an hors d’oeuvre reception. Admission is free, and registration is requested by October 31 at www.thewrigtimpact.com or 734-930-3587.
