FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S DARWIN D. MARTIN HOUSE: SAVE A BUILDING, SAVE A CITY
September 26 | 6:30pm | Boedecker Theater
Free & Open to the Public
Now recognized as one of Wright's greatest early works, The Darwin D. Martin House in Buffalo, New York is a six-building complex (1903-6) that fell into disrepair and was partially demolished between 1937 and 1967, years during which the City of Buffalo itself was in drastic decline. In this presentation, Jack Quinan will describe the events and circumstances by which the house was stabilized and restored and its impact on preservation consciousness in Buffalo, now a city on the rise.
Jack Quinan is a historian of architecture specializing in the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, Modernism, and American Architecture. He is a founder of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, an organization of more than 900 members dedicated to the preservation of Wright's extant work, and he is the senior curator emeritus and a member of the board of directors of Wright's Darwin D. Martin House in Buffalo, NY, during its current $60 million restoration. He is the author of four books and numerous articles on Wright's architecture, and has lectured this year of celebration of Wright's 150 birthday at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City (September 2017).
