Forget the swine flu. We’ve got a bad case of Frank Lloyd Wright fever! In the wake of best-selling novels by Nancy Horan (Loving Frank) and T.C. Boyle (The Women) about Wright’s legendary way with the ladies comes the Guggenheim’s blockbuster summer exhibition marking the fiftieth anniversary of Wright’s landmark building. Opening next Friday, May 15, “Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward” will bring together 64 Wright-designed projects, from privately commissioned residences to unrealized urban mega-structures, with the help of hundreds of original drawings and new digital animations. Speaking of animation, even The Simpsons are getting in on the act. We hear that in Sunday’s episode, Marge and Lisa imagine Maggie all grown up: as the maverick architect hero of Ayn Rand‘s The Fountainhead. Click “continued…” to see more of our favorite photos of Frank, plucked from the Life.com archive.

In this 1955 photo, a dapper FLW puts a romantically hazy blackboard to good use explaining the opportunities and challenges presented by quadrilaterals.

FLW, pictured here in 1954, preferred to ignore the asses around him, even those in elevated positions.
