6 destroyed Frank Lloyd Wright buildings: Eddie's House
Frank Lloyd Wright Companion © WAStorrer
My daughter graduated RPI Architectural program. On a business trip to Scottsdale, we visited Wright's winter home. Want some tidbits? I'm over 6 feet and my first impression was how low the ceilings and door ways were - Mr Wright was very short and this was reflected in his architecture in AZ. He built his home in the middle of a desert and the front patio area was designed to a point, whereas, to resemble the bow of a ship in the middle of the ocean (desert). He also designed many built-ins
and designed his own furniture. His bedroom area simple, was also designed with a built in bed area and bath. He entertained a lot and had also designed a separate building to house a piano with acoustic features and movie accommodations. He didn't just design a building, he considered all aspects of daily living. The facility is open for tour, houses Wright student undergrads (cult like) and the tour staff is excellent.
It's a short article. There are no rules that someone needs to cover all 400 some FLW designs in one article.
