Frank Lloyd Wright: Explore His Amazing Projects Virtually ⇒ Created by Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Unity Temple Restoration Foundation, this project featuring weekly virtual tours of the architect’s sites launched on the 2nd of April and will continue every Thursday for six weeks in hopes of offering light relief during the coronavirus pandemic.
“As social distancing and stay-at-home orders have swept the country, many Frank Lloyd Wright sites that are normally open to the public have had to close their doors, just when they were gearing up for the spring touring season to begin,” said the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
Thus far, you can take a virtual tour of Hollyhock House, Taliesin West, Unity Temple, Emil Bach House, Fallingwater and The Westcott House, while other potential buildings that will be open to the virtual public are Ebsworth Park, Gordon House, Graycliff, Martin House, Willey House and Samara.
“These measures are crucial to slowing the spread of Covid-19 and protecting the staff, volunteers, and visitors who usually fill these extraordinary spaces with life. It is precisely at this time, when so many are shut inside, that we need to experience beauty and inspiration.”
Frank Lloyd Wright was born on 8 June 1867 and throughout his 70-year career designed over 1,000 buildings and completed over 500. Today, he is known as one of the most important 20th-century architects. “Wright’s works bring people together in harmony with the natural world, reminding us that we are all connected, even when we’re apart,” the conservancy continued.
