Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) didn’t just design a house. He saw each building as a fully integrated whole and painstakingly designed stained glass windows, furniture, carpeting, and even lighting fixtures to reflect his concept. This exhibit employs high-quality reproductions of Wright’s drawings of interiors, furnishings, and household objects.

Funded by a grant from Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts.
