Celebrating Frank LLoyd Wright at 150

Today, we honor the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright's birth, and next week the Museum of Modern Art opens Frank Lloyd Wright: Unpacking the Archive, the summer blockbuster organized around the prolific American architect's archive of more than two million objects. Pictured here is a lithograph promoting Wright’s affordable American System-Built Houses project, 1915-1917, commissioned by the Milwaukee-based real estate developer, Richards Company. “I believe that the architecture in America that fails to take into account the machine and modern organization tendencies is going to be of no great benefit to the people,” Wright wrote. “I do not want any mistake made about this new ‘System.’ These buildings are not in any sense the ready cut buildings we have all heard of where a little package of material is sold to be stuck together in any fashion. The American System-Built House is not a ready cut house, but a house… systematized in such a way that the result is guaranteed… I want to deliver beautiful houses to people at a certain price, key in packet.”
