Speaker: Larry A. Woodin a graduate of the UW Department of Architecture has studied the work of America’s most famous architect FL Wright since first encountering his work in Junior High School. He is past president of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and currently serves on that organization’s Executive Board. He played a major role in saving the only Wright house built in Oregon and wrote the book to tell the story: The Gordon House: A Moving Experience. He continues to serve on the board of the Gordon House Conservancy as liaison between the Gordon House and the FLWBC, the only organization dedicated to preserving the entire built legacy of the famous architect.
