Frank Lloyd Wright in Florida

Frank Lloyd Wright in Florida

Call it American architecture’s best-kept secret. Few realize that the world’s largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings lie nestled together on a college campus in South Florida. In recent years, the leadership of Florida Southern College has painstakingly raised awareness and funds in an effort to restore their treasure trove of Wright structures to their former glory. The latest such building: a Theater-in-the-Round — Wright’s only such design — is currently on track for completion this June. And for those who can’t make it to Florida to check out the campus in situ, a new exhibit of Robin Hill’s photographs (such as the Water Dome shot shown above) at the Charles Cowles Gallery in New York City opens May 19th.

Senior editor Catherine Osborne sat down with Nielsen to discuss the evolution of one of Denmark’s most dynamic architectural firms.
