Save Save Remove Delete Grady Gammage Auditorium, an imaginative creation of legendary archictect Frank Lloyd Wright at Arizona State University in Tempe. In 1956, a collapsed roof rendered a facility that served as an auditorium and gymnasium unusable, propelling the movement toward a new auditorium. ASU President GradyGammage recruited his friend Wright to take part in its design, which he based on one for an opera house in Bagdhad after the 1958 Iraqi coup d'état. Both Wright and Gammage died in 1959, and the auditorium’s design was completed by Wright’s protégé, William Wesley Peters. Original image from Carol M.
