September 23 – After Wright: Pathfinders of Regionalism & Sustainability - Rudolf Schindler, Richard Neutra, Antonin & Noémi Raymond.
One day symposium on the work of the European/American architects, Rudolf Schindler, Richard Neutra, Antonin & Noémi (Pernessin) Raymond, who came to the United States and worked for Frank Lloyd Wright, and then pioneered the development of Modern Architecture in their own unique directions. This symposium will focus on the work of these architects, their relationship with Wright, and the contributions and implications of their work today.
The Symposium is in collaboration with the American Institute of Architects - Custom Residential Architects Network, AIA New York Cultural Facilities Committee and coordinated with the Museum of Modern Art.
This symposium will have four presentations: the first on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright during this pivotal point in his career (1910-1923); to be followed by the work of Rudolf Schindler, Richard Neutra, and Antonin and Noémi Raymond-- all in context to this period in which these architects had worked under Wright. In their lectures, the presenters will identify and describe what these aspects in design are, compare them with Wright’s work and with the International Style Modernists that were their peers. Following their presentations there will be a panel discussion investigating the connections, and differences, of these seminal architects, their impact of the direction of architecture in the balance of the 20th Century, and what are the implications of their work today in terms of sustainability, regionalism and an emerging globalism in architecture today.
