March 20, 2019
Florida Southern College, Lakeland

This college campus is home to 14 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings — the most of any site in the U.S. It is also home to the Wright Museum and Tourism Center. Imagine seeing a Wright building just as he would have conceived it. Noted Wright scholar, Timothy Totten, will be our guide as he previews our tour with a lunchtime presentation on Wright’s inspiration and how he became involved with FSU. Timothy will also show us the towering Annie Pfeiffer Chapel and the Danforth Chapel (at left) with a visit to the Ordway building to experience the amazing acoustics of his round room. Before departing we’ll make a stop in the Visitor’s Center, gift shop and see the magnificent fountain. Enjoy the three-dimensional vision of a master designer in a single site, named the most beautiful college campus by Princeton Review two years running.
