Spring House (1952)

Spring House

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Spring House is a unique architectural marvel nestled in Tallahassee, Florida. As the sole private residence designed by the master architect in the entire state, it stands as a testament to his innovative spirit. Its distinctive “pod-shaped” design, a departure from his more familiar Prairie Style, reflects Wright’s exploration of new forms […]

Never forget an architect by the name of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Born in Richland Center, Wisconsin on June 8th, 1867, the American genius and visionary architect and designer would go on to design more than 1,000 structures in a period of about 70 years.

Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio

A hulking, massive and somewhat odd structure that seems almost cobbled together from large geometric shapes, the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio really represents what might be considered a testing ground for Wright’s inventive and imaginative genius that was developed over a period of some twenty years in his early career. This was the […]

Fallingwater

Designed in 1935 and completed in 1937, it is quite possible that Fallingwater just may be one of the most photographed, videoed, written about and talked about of Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. It is likely one of the most famous buildings of the 20th century. Built over a waterfall, the house was supposed to serve […]

It’s hard to believe that anyone exists who has not heard of the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, New York, or that it has been featured in a few movies. A few? Well, let’s try a statement from guggenheim.org/blogs: “Members of the film and television community have chosen to feature the building in more […]
