A charter member of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Fellowship, John H. Howe earned a reputation as “the pencil in Wright’s hand” before establishing his own architectural practice in Minnesota. This is the first book to tell Howe’s story and also the first full account of his place in the history of modern architecture—as chief draftsman and valued interpreter of Wright’s designs and as a prolific architect in his own right. In Tucson he designed the Barbra Mettler Studio featured as part of 2017 Tucson Modernism Week.
This lecture is presented by author and architect Tim Quigley is dedicated to architecture. He is principal of Quigley Architects, a small architecture firm in Minneapolis, MN, specializing in single-family residential work. For over twenty years, Tim’s primary focus has been high quality residential architecture, designed to satisfy individual homeowners. This work has ranged from small to large, simple to incredibly complex, from new homes and teardowns to major transformations, ambitious additions and remodelings, to simple facelifts and minor tweakings. The unifying theme for all projects has been a quest for character and quality while being uniquely appropriate to its setting.
He currently serves as president of the advisory board at the Goldstein Museum of Design at the U of MN and on the board of the local chapter of Docomomo-US, a preservation group dedicated to saving the built work of the modern movement. Formerly, he served on the board of the local chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians and is a past president of the board of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, a national non-profit preservation organization based in Chicago.
