  The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park Annual Lecture
Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House-Saving a House, Saving a City
Jack Quinan, Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, University at Buffalo (S.U.N.Y.)

Tuesday, May 3, 7:00 pm
The Farrell Auditorium. Free.
Advance tickets recommended.


As part of the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park Annual Lecture Series, Quinan will discuss another work by the great architect. The Martin House, now recognized as one of Wright’s greatest early works, fell into disrepair and was partially demolished between 1937 and 1967, years during which the City of Buffalo itself was in drastic decline. This presentation will describe the events and circumstances by which the house was stabilized and restored and its impact on preservation consciousness in Buffalo, now a city on the rise.
