Harvard professor of art history and architecture Neil Levine explains why the architect Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the leading contributors to the creation of the modern city.

Levine seeks to overturn the conventional view of Wright as an architect who deplored the city and whose vision was limited to a utopian plan for a series of agrarian communities. He says his urbanism is demonstrated through a range of projects aimed at reforming residential neighbourhoods in Chicago at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries and later projects for commercial, mixed-use, civic and cultural centres in Chicago, Madison, Washington and Baghdad.

Levine is Emmet Blakeney Gleason Research Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University. His books include The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and Modern Architecture: Representation and Reality.
