Frank Lloyd Wright in Our Neighborhood
I was googling Frank Lloyd Wright houses in Philadelphia to see if he had any in this area, only to discover that he has four or one, depending on how you look at it, in our neighborhood. So we took a walk to see them. (Thank heavens for better weather; now we can enjoy some family walks.)
I'm not quite sure how it works, as we could only stalk them from the street, but purportedly there are four homes connected and arranged in a pinwheel fashion. Like an update on the row house, but with more privacy.
This is another example of his Usonian houses, or architecture for the masses. (Francisco and I visited one back in St. Louis.)
