Living in America: Frank Lloyd Wright, Harlem, and Modern Housing

The question of “how to live in America, together” preoccupied architects and planners throughout the 20th century.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Broadacre City” proposal for an exurban settlement of single-family houses offered one possible answer; plans for large public or subsidized housing located in urban areas presented another. Although these two visions seem a world apart, they share a common history. For this discussion, Jacob Moore will discuss the research and and curatorial approach for the exhibition Living in America: Frank Lloyd Wright, Harlem & Modern Housing, which attempts to stitch these two seemingly distinct stories back together, and in doing so asks, “How can we live in America, together, today?”
