The Gordon House

Lloyd Wright designed well over 1,000 homes and buildings throughout his
illustrious career, but only one of those structures was built in the State
of Oregon: The Gordon House. Commissioned by Conrad and Evelyn Gordon, the
88-year-old Wright designed the home in his Usonian style in 1957 for the
couple’s sprawling farmland acreage that overlooked the Willamette River in
Wilsonville - about 30 minutes south of Portland. It wouldn’t be until
several years later that the home would actually be built (1964), but sadly
Wright passed away before the project was completed. The Gordon House proved
to be Wright’s final Usonian design."
