Frank Lloyd Wright captured the aura of ancient Mayan temples with stylized hollyhock patterns and projecting pinnacles at the Aline Barnsdall House in California. The house is commonly known as the Hollyhock House. Wright called the house his California Romanza, suggesting that the house was like an intimate piece of music.
