The Art of Craft: Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modernism in Paris and Brussels

June 2-9, 2018



At the dawn of the 20th century, as Frank Lloyd Wright worked to shape his vision for a new American architecture, the currents of Modernism coursed at home and abroad. In Europe a generation of dynamic and brilliant architects and designers sought to create a vocabulary of design appropriate to the modern age. Like Wright, his European contemporaries embraced the meticulous craftsmanship of the earlier British Arts and Crafts movement, while anticipating the simplicity of forms and the innovative materials and practices of Modernism.

From the lavishly ornamented buildings of Belgian architect and designer Victor Horta, and the sinuous organic forms of Hector Guimard’s Paris Metro stations, to the pristine, minimalist villas of Le Corbusier, join the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust on an immersive journey exploring this defining period in European Modernism. Trace the development of the Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modernist movements in Brussels and Paris, with in-depth tours of masterworks by Victor Horta, Paul Cauchie, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Pierre Chareau and Le Corbusier. Enjoy fine regional cuisine, curator-led tours and expert guidance in magical Paris and Brussels.
