August Lecture Series—H. H. Richardson and His Heirs
August 1, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFREE
For the first of our lecture series, we explore the work and history of H. H. Richardson through our presentation by PHLF staff.
Two of America’s most important architects are Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886) and Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). Both designed several of their finest buildings in Western Pennsylvania and some of their most talented apprentices lived and worked here.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
