This class will honor America’s greatest architect and review his fabulous career that covered almost 70 years. In the nearly 1000 buildings he designed, Wright sought to bring architecture into harmony with the environment. The speaker will cover Wright’s colorful career and his philosophy of design. He will focus on some of Wright’s best-known buildings, including Fallingwater in Pennsylvania and the Pope-Leighy House near Mount Vernon.

He has also offered classes on opera and architecture. He earned his doctorate in economics at Cornell University and is a managing director at the American Institute for Research (AIR) in Washington, D.C.
