FINAL PROJECTS WILL BE PRESENTED DURING THE EXAM BLOCK.
WRITE A 2 PAGE DOUBLE SPACED PAPER ON FRANK LLYOD WRIGHT. THIS PAPER SHOULD FOCUS ON HIS BACKGROUND AND TRAINING IN ART/ARCHICTECTURE. WHAT WERE HIS INFLUENCES? WHAT INSPIRED HIM? WHAT ARE HIS PHILOSOPHIES ABOUT ARCHITECTURE? WHAT MAKES FLW STAND OUT FROM OTHER ARCHITECTS? WHAT DID HE DO DIFFERENTLY? WHAT KIND OF PERSONALITY WAS HE? WERE THERE SIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN HIS LIFE?
APPROACH THE PAPER WITH THESE QUESTIONS IN MIND. BE SURE TO SITE YOUR SOURCES, ONLINE OR BOOKS. ANY FORM OF PLAIGIRISM WILL RESULT IN A ZERO!
Design and render an exterior of a residential home that you think would embody as many elements of FLW's philosophy as possible. For example, would there be a driveway? Would it serve a purpose? Location of front door etc... This drawing should utilize the stylistic traits of Lloyd's work as well as considering the materials used and elements that are consistantly part of his work. The finish can be in any medium and can consist of a limited color palette. Minimum size is 9 x 12
PRESENTATIONS DURING THE EXAM BLOCK WILL BE BRIEF BUT SHOULD PRESENT TO THE CLASS AS THOUGH NO ONE HAS ANY PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF THE ARTIST. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ THE PAPER BUT BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT THE DECISIONS YOU MADE IN YOUR SKETCH AND HOW THEY RELATE TO FLW’S WORK.. YOU WILL LIKELY BE ASKED SOME BASIC QUESTIONS AS WELL SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR TOPIC. THIS PROJECT COUNTS FOR 20% OF YOUR GRADE!
