Frank Lloyd Wright

Happy 150th Birthday, Frank Lloyd Wright

Jun 5, 2017

Frank Lloyd Wright's 150th birthday is on June 8, and WSU is celebrating with tours of one of the buildings designed by the famous architect.

The Corbin Building opened in 1964 and is one of two that Frank Lloyd Wright designed for the campus, then called the Municipal University of Wichita.

American architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed more than 1,000 structures during his lifetime. Among them is the Corbin Education Center on the Wichita State Campus.

Walking tours of the building will be offered Friday in honor of Wright's birthday.

Alan Aagaard is a WSU professor and will lead the tours. He'll talk about the architect's career and other familiar buildings in Wichita designed by Wright's students.
