Gammage Auditorium at ASU (1959)

Gammage Exterior

Gammage Auditorium is a Wright-designed building is named for Dr. Grady Gammage. He is the legendary ASU president who led Arizona State College’s victorious campaign in the state legislature for a name change to Arizona State University in 1958. Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium is considered by many to be the crowning jewel of ASU’s Tempe campus. It is also one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s last designs and was constructed to be as acoustically perfect as possible.

Grady Gammage

Grady Gammage served as ASU’s ninth president from 1933-1959. He passed away in 1959, the same year as Frank Lloyd Wright, and never had the chance to see the finished structure.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
