Lecture: A Modern Education: Learning from Froebel, Wright, Tyng, and Noguchi

Hear from Alexandra Lange, Architecture Critic, Curbed, at this lecture based on her new book, The Design of Childhood: How the Material World Shapes Independent Kids.

Frank Lloyd Wright liked to tell the story of how his interest in form was piqued by early encounters with wooden blocks. In this lecture, Lange will discuss the origins and development of wooden blocks, why they came to dominate American kindergartens, and how designers and educators including Caroline Pratt, Anne Tyng, Isamu Noguchi and Charles and Ray Eames thought they could improve upon them.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Serious Play: Midcentury Design in America.
