Frank Lloyd Wright's Bachman-Wilson House at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art / 2015


Footnotes

Wright actually never visited a Usonian home, Turk said. He was busy working on the Price Tower in Bartlesville, Okla., and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, when the Bachman-Wilson House was built. ➡︎

In 1988, the house was purchased by architects Lawrence and Sharon Tarantino with the vision of restoring the home to its former glory, stripping materials to their original finishes and filling the home with Wright-designed furniture. But threats from the flooding river grew increasingly frequent, prompting the Tarantinos to decide that relocating the building was the best option for its preservation. ➡︎
