I will be visiting Illinois in September including some structures designed by FLW, and it was most helpful to learn so much about not just his buildings but his philosophy about architecture. Form doesn't follow function...form and function are one...I think I've operated on this concept much of the life already too...

Dr. Hirsh presentation was personable, well researched and beautifully illustrated with photos, drawings and videos.
My sister and I grew up in Chicago. As children, we were surrounded by Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings. Dr. Hirsh's lecture was quite insightful and allowed us to take a trip down memory lane.
Frank Lloyd Wright is a household name. I thought I knew most of what there is to know about him, the basics at least. Nope! Dr. Hirsh's engaging lecture revealed MUCH MORE. In addition to the 'what, when, where, how', she discussed the 'why' behind his work- his decisions and influences. That was new for me. We learned tantalizing details about Wright's personal life, his travels, acquaintances. Dr. Hirsh even took us on a virtual video tour, an unexpected treat. She crafted an intellectual and intimate learning environment reminiscent of my university days.
Thanks to her seminar, I have a renewed interest in exploring my city and neighborhood in search of architectural charms that were undoubtedly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. I can't wait to start searching.
Brava Dr. Jennie Hirsh! Brava!
