Design Conversations: Playing Architect

Playing Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright liked to tell the story of how his interest in form was piqued by early encounters with wooden blocks. In this lecture, Alexandra Lange will discuss why kids play wooden blocks, what lessons they teach, and how designers and educators including Caroline Pratt, Anne Tyng, Isamu Noguchi and Charles and Ray Eames tried to improve upon them in concrete, plastic and cardboard.

4:45PM, University Gallery Level 2, Booth Hall 7A, Vignelli Center for Design Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY.
