Travel Tips for Lakeland

Frank Lloyd Wright Does Florida

by yooperprof

"Child of the Sun"

Organic Architecture: buildings that don't dominate the earth, but live in harmony with it. Structures that respond to and accomodate their environment. What a concept! Here at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Wright attempted to bring his philosophy of architecture to the semi-tropical south. Florida Southern is rightfully proud of its unique concentration of remarkable FLW buildings.

"The Esplanades"

These covered walkways are a key feature of Wright's plan for the Florida Southern campus. They wander over a mile and a half of sidewalks, and provide shelter from the frequents rain showers of the region. They also provide a key architecture "glue" that helps bind together the disparate buildings of the college.

My father - a native of Long Island, New York - attended Florida Southern College in the early 1950s on the GI Bill. He had wanted to go to school somewhere warm, where he could play baseball year-round. When he was here in the 50s, many of the Wright buildings were already in existence; others were constructed during his stay. FLW himself was an occasional visitor to Lakeland. I sometimes wonder if my own interest in Wright's architecture is somehow connected to my father's enrollment at Florida Southern.

Here's my Dad and stepmother in March 2004, in a bower of roses on the FSC campus.
