The Cliff Dwellers and the Chicago Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, in co-sponsorship with the Friends of Downtown and the Chicago Chapter of the AIA, are pleased to present another in their series of architectural events on Thursday September, 2019: Mark Hertzberg presents, “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Penwern: A Summer Estate.”
While many people are familiar with Frank Lloyd Wright’s year-round urban and suburban residential designs, he also designed some 50 summer cottages and related buildings, most of them early in the Twentieth Century. Mark Hertzberg presents a richly illustrated talk about Wright’s Fred B. Jones estate on Delavan Lake, which has four Wright buildings (1900-1903).
Mark Hertzberg is the author and photographer of four books about Frank Lloyd Wright’s work in southeastern Wisconsin. He will be honored with a Wright Spirit Award from the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy at the annual conference in Los Angeles in October.
