Vibrant Travel Posters Celebrate the Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless

“The Pearce House” by DKNG Studios

In the nearly 70 years since his death, Frank Lloyd Wright‘s architecture has continued to inspire. Whether designing museums like New York City's Guggenheim or creating stunning residences like Fallingwater, his ability to create aesthetically pleasing, functional architecture has arguably been unparalleled. For the past several years, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Spoke Art have come together to produce a traveling pop-up show that demonstrates the continued relevance of three famed architect's work.

Frank Lloyd Wright: Timeless is a group exhibition that sees artists from around the world create travel posters based on the architect's iconic buildings. Designed in the style of 1930s-era Works Progress Administration (WPA) travel posters, these original illustrations are truly timeless interpretations of Wright's work.

DKNG Studios focuses on the curving lines of The Pearce House, a Usonian masterpiece from 1950. The bright, bold colors only highlight the home's hemicycle design. Italian designers Van Orton focus on one of Wright's unbuilt masterpieces, Morris House. This spectacular residence was meant to be built into a cliff overlooking the San Francisco Bay. While it never came to fruition, Van Orton's work is a wonderful look at Wright's vision.

The traveling exhibition was on display at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. Once Wright's winter home and studio, it is now the headquarters of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Though the show only lasted for a weekend, all of the designs can be viewed—and purchased—on Spoke Art's website. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
