Sustainable Design in the Modern World

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation

A discussion of sustainable design elements and green building.

Frank Lloyd Wright was at the forefront of sustainability before it was the buzzword that most architects and designers strive for in their work today. Wright’s architecture was inherently sustainable due to his use of material, orientation, and siting of his buildings, and his ability to tie the design to the surrounding landscape. Many of Wright’s inherently sustainable design elements can be seen widely in today’s architecture. This talk will go over Wright’s design philosophy and use case studies to tie sustainable design elements to today’s green building movement. This workshop is in conjunction with the American Institute of Architects – Arizona Design Awards exhibition at the Appaloosa Public Gallery.
