Frank Lloyd Wright
|Like the Charles Ennis House, executed later, this unique house illustrates Wright's fascination with pre-Columbian architecture, in this case Mayan temples. Stylized patterns of hollyhocks, projecting pinnacles, and a site on a hill surrounded by olive trees and other foliage complete the historical "look" of this house, transplanted to southern California. |
