Monday, June 21, 3:00 PM – Learn the history of the Westcott House, the product of arguably the most important architect of the modern era. In the early 1940s, the interior alterations—the conversion of the open floor plan into a multi-unit apartment building—changed the architecture so significantly that it no longer reflected the design intent of its architect. Due to these drastic alterations, the Westcott House remained an undiscovered relic for many years- a lost Wright artifact. Through the cooperative efforts of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and the Westcott House Foundation, today the Westcott House is an important rediscovery, a notable, newly unearthed and revitalized example of Wright’s legacy.
Speaker: Marta Wojcik, Executive Director and Curator of The Westcott House
