Weekly Architecture Fix, Vol. 7 | Frank Lloyd Wright

We’re still here for you, even while social distancing

Hi, all!

First, a big THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign. We raised over $8,000 from our community and board members past and present. We are incredibly grateful.

You’ve likely noticed Frank Lloyd Wright has been curiously missing from recent features in these weekly emails. Now you know it’s because we’ve been saving him for a feature all his own. And, let’s be honest, that’s what he’d expect. We at DAF never tire of learning more about this singular voice in architecture. We hope you enjoy the selection.

Warm regards,
DAF Team
