I've seen pictures and read books and a view videos about the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright but to actually be in one of his creation is mind expanding. The layout and furniture design is unsurpassed. Modern builders should be required to visit this beautiful...More

We have toured about 10 flw houses and we loved this one. It’s one of the smallest but awesome. You must book tour in advance.

Great house built in Frank Lloyd Wrights later years. I recommend you book a reservation as times book up fast. only 12 people can tour the house at a time as it is small, but uniquely FLW.

Seeing this house helped me understand the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright, the way he made his house a work of art. So cool to see a house with almost no 90 degree angles. Everything was composed of paralleagrams, hexagrams, and triangles. Tickets need to...More

The genius of Frank Lloyd Wright is seen in the geometry of the architecture and furniture that he designed for this house. Instead of 90 degree angles, this house has 60 degree and 120 degree angles. Everywhere you look you will see parallelograms, triangles, hexagons...More

I've seen many Frank Lloyd Wright houses, including many Usonions. This one is very special. It is larger and more complex than most and has beautiful grounds. The owner had incredible dedication to building this house and ensuring its fidelity to Mr Wright's vision. Our...More
