On Saturday, those interested in organic architecture, renewable energy and the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the world’s most famous architects and an early proponent of organic architecture, will have a rare treat. On that day, Wright’s grandson, Eric Lloyd Wright, also a working architect and Malibu resident, will welcome the public to the headquarters of the Wright Organic Resource Center for a forum and fundraiser.
The mission of the Wright Organic Resource Center, located on a 24-acre site high atop a local mountain, is to educate and activate people to be creative, aware, and socially and environmentally responsible. It also provides opportunities for people in the Los Angeles area, especially youth, to experience the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright and organic architecture, and encourages the creative integration of nature, art and community.
The event will begin at 1 p.m. with an open house offering exhibits of art, architecture and landscape work followed by a series of lectures, discussions, and casual interactions on environmental subjects. The lectures will be conducted by Wright and his associates. The day will conclude with a sunset gathering overlooking a spectacular, eagle’s-eye view of Malibu’s mountains and coastline.
A donation of $20 per person is suggested; and the event is open to all ages (no pets, however). Light refreshments will also be available. The Wright Organic Research Center is located at 24680 Piuma Road. Reservations requested, additional information, and/or directions can be obtained by calling 818.591.8992 or by e-mailing email@example.com.
