Wright’s son’s house–

JAAA!  This is an interesting little house that Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built for his son, David Wright, back in 1952.  It is located in the ‘Arcadia’ neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona. . .what a treat to find it.

This year, 2017, is the 150th anniversary of the birth of FLW, and as part of the celebration the last owners of the house just donated it to the FLW Foundation or Trust or Conservatorship to ensure that the house lives on and on as one of the shining examples of Wright’s creativity as an architect and builder.

The spiral design of the David Wright house is a precursor of the Guggenheim Museum that Frank designed and had built on Fifth Avenue in New York City. . .this dude was always working out ideas on one project that could show up bigger and better on future projects–most wonderful!

Apparently this house was scheduled to be demolished at some recent time, and now it has been saved so that we can go on enjoying it.  Please come and visit the David Wright house on Rubicon Avenue in Phoenix, AZ. . .after you pay your respects and snap some photos, you can then pop on over to the Royal Palms Hotel just up the block for lunch–that would be a fabulous way to spend an afternoon out here in the heat dome.

It’s lovely out there.
