In between landscapes and history. Wright and organic architecture at IUAV
Università Iuav di Venezia
July 02, 2017
This exhibition aims to illustrate the influence within IUAV of Frank Lloyd Wright's lesson and his "organicist" conception immediately after World War II. Simultaneous circumstances definitively contributed to the development of an original and multifaceted tendency while the School was directed by Giuseppe Samonà: the presence of architectural historian Bruno Zevi - of which this year occurs the centenary of his birth -, Wright’s visit to Venice and the designing task of Angelo Masieri Memorial over the Grand Canal’s waters, the role of "mediator" of the American master's thought played by Carlo Scarpa, a brilliant, influential and already established architect. In this context, - and in an absolutely unique and unrepeatable cultural ferment - precious talents developed, as can be seen in the section dedicated to 16 eminent figures that constitute a tangible panorama of the design skills that the "season" expressed. Bruno Morassutti’s American trip photographs, taken between 1949 and 1950, are another extraordinary (and up to now unknown) proof of the attraction that Wright, Soleri and the new American landscapes imbued in that precise historical phase. The section dedicated to " Zevi’s students" with the variety of the exhibited materials, from drawing to photography, films, publications, didactic courses materials all held at IUAV, undoubtedly gives an idea of a complex, rich production of inspiration and interpretative modalities.
This part of the show represents the prood of what was imagined and realized by a "distinctive" Italian architectural school demonstrating the ability to elaborate ideas closely related to the international debate, knowing hot to inscrive North-East italy landscapes with conviction and confidence in the development of the renewd design and social experience of modernity.
