Frank Lloyd Wright's Broadacre City project is often treated as an unsuccessful urban plan. It is also interesting in itself as a work of art that Wright and some of his students in the Fellowship returned to periodically over more than two decades. There is also a latent third sector (or "commons") of suggested organizations and institutions hidden in the details of the plan.


This presentation was prepared for a class in Frank Lloyd Wright that I audited after retiring from my professorship at WVU. It was offered in the Department of Art History.
