Alumni Launch Petition to Save the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture’s Accreditation

A group of alumni from the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture have launched a petition on change.org to incorporate the school “as an independent subsidiary as required by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to ensure this irreplaceable treasure is perpetuated.” The school is currently at risk of losing its accreditation due to a recently enacted HLC law that requires colleges and other institutions to be  accredited separately from the organizations that sponsor them. The Frank Lloyd Wright School is currently funded as a part of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, which supports both of the school’s campuses, and preserves collections of Wright’s work. 

“The School is a vibrant, rigorous, and fully accredited contemporary school of architectural design (offering an HLC- and NAAB-accredited M.Arch degree) that fills an irreplaceable niche as an alternative to conventional architectural education, a mandate set forth by Frank Lloyd Wright at its founding in 1932,” states the petition, which currently has over 400 signatures. Among the signatures are Mecanoo’s Francine Houben and Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa, who wrote: “Having stayed at Taliesin West for five months as a Scholar in Residence, I have deeply understood the great potential of the School.”

But when it comes to their own abodes, they tend to take a few more licenses. These houses often serve as testing grounds for the architect’s most adventurous ideas, …Continue Reading

More Than Machines For Writing: A Modulor-Themed Pen-And-Card Set For The Architect In Your Life

If you’re going to be an architect, you have to dress the part. Every affectation, from the dark tint of your apparel and the rehearsed asymmetry of the sole egg-shaped earring to the half-smoked cigarette in your non-writing hand and the (neatly) rolled up,”ready-to-work” sleeves. If that sounds like you (and you know it does), here’s a Sigue leyendo

Pedro Guerrero, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Photographer, Dies at 95

Guerrero had no  photography degree and didn’t even know who the 72-year-old architect was. He just knew him as a man building a house in the desert. That house later became Sigue leyendo
