Join Docomomo US/MN for a virtual screening of John H. Howe, Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Master of Perspective, September 16th, 6:30pm-8:15pm.
The film is followed by a discussion with Rob Barros, the filmmaker; Jane King Hession, author of John H. Howe, Architect: From Taliesin Apprentice to Master of Organic Design; and Sidney Bowen, architect and three-time Howe homeowner.
View recorded intro and panel discussion here. Panel discussion begins at 3:36.
Narrated by John Howe himself, the film features interviews with family, colleagues, and clients detailing how their relationships with the architect shaped their homes and lives. Howe shares what the early days of the Taliesin Fellowship entailed over reedited historic footage shot by Alden Down in 1934.
Howe designed multiple houses in Minnesota, including the Grabow Residence in Rochester, which was featured on last month’s virtual Going Going Gone. Essentially unknown beyond Taliesin, for 27 years John Howe shared drafting tables with Frank Lloyd Wright, who had dubbed him "accomplice."
Many thanks to Rob Barros, Jane King Hession and Sidney Bowen for the lively panel discussion following the virtual film screening! A recording of the film introduction and panel discussion is available on our Vimeo Channel. Panel discussion begins at 3:36.
