William Allin Storrer, Ph.D., is an adjunct professor at The University of Texas and a noted scholar of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. In his book, The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright: A Complete Catalog, Storrer organizes Wright's work chronologically with descriptions, historical information, and updated details about each project.
In this talk, Storrer will discuss the 4th edition of this catalog, copiously illustrated with images and plans. Covering a variety of topics about Wright, the talk will discuss some of his more peculiar design techniques, such as a building design based on a client's character.
"Goldsmith Talks" is an open-format series of presentations organized by UTSOA faculty, staff, and students. Goldsmith Talks aims to encourage and promote presentations that are outside of the scope of the main lecture series. Examples are: invited seminar presentations, book talks, lectures by designers and scholars who may be in Austin for another engagement, round-table discussions, film screenings, product demonstrations, or any other activity related to research, scholarship, and teaching activities and at the school. The format provides a platform for encouraging the dissemination of work by visitors and members of our community. The goal is to raise awareness, increase access, and better integrate such events within the public life of the school.
