Lloyd Wright, OU, and the Miracle of Light
by Lynne Rostochil. Brochure from Lynne’s collection.
Although Lloyd Wright lived in the looming shadow of his much more famous father, Frank Lloyd Wright, the younger architect created many incredible designs of his own, including the stunning Wayfarer’s Chapel in Palos Verdes, CA:
He also designed the gorgeous but somewhat creepy Sowden House in Los Angeles where the brutal and still unsolved Black Dahlia murder may or may not have taken place:
In 1964, the University of Oklahoma School of Architecture hosted an exhibition celebrating Wright’s architectural designs entitled “Let There Be Light and There Was Light.” What a great exhibit that must have been! While we can’t travel back in time and attend, I have found an exhibit catalog to share with you. Enjoy!
