In the summer issue of Modern In Denver, we profiled Elizabeth Wright Ingraham, Colorado Springs architect—and granddaughter of Frank Lloyd Wright.
While she passed away in 2013, Ingraham left a strong presence in Colorado with both her commercial and residential architecture, both individually and with her former husband and partner as part of Ingraham & Ingraham, Architects.
Continuing to recognize her impact here, on September 4, Elaine Freed, author of Modern at Mid-Century: The Early Fifites Houses of Ingraham and Ingraham, will present “Architecture in Colorado Springs” as the guest speaker during the September membership meeting of the Historic Preservation Alliance of Colorado Springs. Her presentation will focus on Colorado Springs architects who made significant impacts, including the Ingraham-Wright team as well as A. Jan Ruhtenberg.
Also see the video below, from an AIA Colorado History Committee’s interview with her.
