Week 15 #4 Architectural Details

3 Comments

My photo group recently took a field trip to Lakeland, FL. to visit Florida Southern College perched high on a hillside overlooking beautiful Lake Hollingsworth.  The campus is home to the largest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings in one place.  During 1938,  College President Dr. Ludd Spivey had a vision for the campus to become a unique American college and embrace the Architectural Designs of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Wright designed 18 structures, 13 of which have been constructed, with the first completed in 1941, the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel. The chapel is used for numerous weekly events ranging from church services, plays, Student award ceremonies and weddings.  The day we visited several women were setting up for a wedding scheduled that afternoon.

Wright’s designs were monumentaly  unique during his life and his influence is still felt today in modern Architecture.  Inside the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel several walls had multiple colored glass set into the unusual designed cement walls. I chose to highlight one of the walls as my contribution to “Architectural Details”.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
