Lakewood Historical Society – Is Wright Still Relevant?
Presentation by Fred Unwin
Since his death sixty years ago, Frank Lloyd Wright remains the prototype architect in the minds of Americans. Of the three surviving Wright-designated homes in the Cleveland area, Fred Unwin will focus on the Weltzheimer/Johnson house in Oberlin. This is an example of Wrights Usonian house, designed to answer the demand for beautiful and affordable middle-class homes. Unwin has served as volunteer docent at the home for the past sixteen years.
