Please note, this event has expired.
Book discussion and signing
Aaron G. Green FAIA was an internationally known organic architect of “striking originality and grace.” His diversified architectural works include residential, commercial, industrial, municipal, judicial, religious, interment, mass housing, and educational projects.
In the early 1940s, Aaron became a member of Frank Lloyd Wright’s apprentice group, the Taliesin Fellowship. Over the next twenty years, he maintained a close relationship with Frank Lloyd Wright, at whose request Aaron established a San Francisco office in 1951, both for his own practice and as Mr. Wright’s West Coast representative.
When asked who Aaron was, Wright commented, “Aaron Green is my son.” Green participated in over thirty Frank Lloyd Wright projects and was appointed by Frank Lloyd Wright as associated architect for the Marin County Civic Center. Shortly before his passing, Green was awarded the first gold medal by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in recognition of his career and accomplishments and dedication to organic architecture.
Join us for a night honoring this visionary architect, with a conversation between Green’s son Allan Green and architect Jan Novie. Book-signing courtesy of Copperfield’s Books.
