Cel­e­brat­ing the 150th birth an­niver­sary of Frank Lloyd Wright (born 8 June 1867), the MoMA in New York in­au­gu­rates a ret­ro­spec­tive on the most fa­mous and pro­lific Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect of the 20th cen­tury: over 450 works from the late 1800s to the 1950s, in 12 sec­tions, each in­ves­ti­gat­ing a key theme or a project. “Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Un­pack­ing the Archive” is also the first of­fi­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of the Wright Foun­da­tion Archives, ac­quired in 2012 by MoMA and the Avery Li­brary at Columbia Univer­sity.
