Dr. Jack Quinan to Speak Oct. 22 @Milne

Please join noted architectural historian and Frank Lloyd Wright scholar Jack Quinan as he uncovers Thoreau’s place in architectural history and traces the connections between Henry David Thoreau’s cabin at Walden with the major architectural movements of Europe and the Americas leading up to the time of Thoreau, his contributions to transcendentalism, 20th-century modernism, and beyond. The talk will be held on Monday, October 22, at 5:30 p.m. in Milne 105.

Dr. Quinan is SUNY Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, Senior Curator of the Darwin D. Martin House, and founder of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. His most recent book, “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Buffalo Venture From The Larkin Building to Broadacre City,” was published this past September, and gathers together Wright’s 24 buildings and projects for Buffalo and Buffalo-related clients.
