Things to Do: Tour a Frank Lloyd Wright Home

Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the most talented architects in American history. The first structure he built in Los Angeles is the Hollyhock House, and it is available to tour.

This particular home was commissioned by a wealthy oil heiress, Aline Barnsdall. She was a fiercely independent woman who traveled, loved the arts, supported various political causes, and was a single mom at a time when that was frowned upon.

Barnsdall commissioned Wright to build the Hollyhock House in 1919, and it was completed in 1921. She asked Wright to incorporate her favorite flower, the hollyhock, into the design of the home. If you take a tour, you will see abstract examples of the flower inside and outside of the home.

Fun Fact: Frank Lloyd Wright’s second eldest son, John, invented Lincoln Logs in 1916.
