Letter of Authenticity
Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture." His creative period spanned more than 70 years.
The Center was designed by William Wesley Peters, chief architect of Taliesin Associated Architects, The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Smooth curves and rounded lines make a statement that this is a unique building and we can expect creativity within as well as without. With a stunning view of Frank Lloyd Wright’s only skyscraper, the Price Tower, the Center is home to the world’s largest cloisonné mural. The over 25 foot long mural shows a stylized northeastern Oklahoma countryside. Crystalline light fixtures are suspended like icicles from meeting hall ceilings and original paintings and sculptures are on display in many locations.
