Frank Lloyd Wright at Avery
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects as "the greatest American architect of all time" and throughout its distinguished history, Avery Library has comprehensively collected materials by and about Frank Lloyd Wright. From his first published work, to his drawings and papers, to comprehensive coverage of the critical literature devoted to Wright and his legacy, Avery’s library and archival collections offer an unparalleled resource for investigating Wright and his prolific body of works. In 2012, Avery’s existing holdings of Wright related archives was monumentally expanded by the co-acquisition with The Museum of Modern Art of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives. Collocated here are guides to Avery’s Wright holdings, together with guides to our research support services. MORE >>
Our work on the Wright collections is ongoing. Parts of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation Archives are currently open for research while others are in active states of processing. Similarly, items from the collections are being imaged to support research, publication and exhibition projects. We are in the early stages of planning large-scale digitization of our holdings, and hope to present digitized content online in the coming years. Contact us to inquire about how you can help support Avery’s Wright projects.
