Welcome To The Wright Society
It's finally here—the inaugural issue of the new Wright Society newsletter!
After 10 years of bringing important and interesting architecture and design news via PrairieMod, we've decided to try something new to better focus on the work and world of our favorite architectural icon: Frank Lloyd Wright.
His ideas and work influenced so many in architecture and design, in addition to greatly impacting Modernism in ways still felt today. Just like before, we aim to bring you both Wright-specific news and interesting items that fall within the boundaries of his broad influence.
So, without further ado, enjoy this first issue and all the items of interest curated from the last week.
Enjoy, let us know what you think, and keep calm and Wright on...
