Darwin D. Martin House

The first FLW house I saw is my favorite. It's in Buffalo, NY and was having extensive renovation a few years ago. It is on a marvelous site, and is "elegantly immense," unlike too many very large houses. Its simplicity and strength complement each other perfectly.

At least 2: Falling Water and Guggenheim

That's a tough question. How do I choose among so many inspiring works? But if I have to list some, I could say Falling Water, an amazing, unique, sensational, creative work of art, a masterpiece integrating nature, art and technology; and also the iconic and unique Guggenheim - always showing the way up, again technology and creativity got together to create this gorgeous and exceptional building.

The Louis Penfield House

A simply wonderful house on a beautiful piece of northeast Ohio land -- the Louis Penfield House in Willoughby Hills, Ohio.

La Miniatura

The Millard house in Pasadena is my favorite. The building is exquisitely detailed and beautifully proportioned. The landscaping is gorgeous with the small pool and waterfall. Absolute perfection. It sits in a neighborhood full of Greene and Greene craftsmen homes including the Gamble house.

FallingWater

I LOVE Fallingwater. The whole design and the idea of it actually being over a small waterfall is perfect!! FLW was a genius.

Fallingwater

In school we are actually taking a field trip to the Robbie house, to study architecture. But I love the design of Fallingwater.

Darwin Martin House Complex

Correction: The interior of the house is open for a fantastic tour. Just contrast this house with the other mansions built in the same area at the same time. Astoundindly futuristic! [NOTE FROM EDITOR: As of March 2012, construction is ongoing at the Darwin Martin House. Be sure to call ahead to find out which rooms will be included in your tour. For tour information, also visit: http://www.darwinmartinhouse.org/tour_schedules.cfm]

Taliesin West

I think Taliesin West is when FLW really mastered his organic architecture, and you can really notice the harmony between nature and the structure.

The Price Tower

The Price Tower completed in 1956 is one of my favorite Frank LLoyd Wright masterpieces. Had the great fortune to visit the wonderful building and spending a couple of nights there. What a wonderful treat it was rent a room and stay in a museum now, designed by the master!

Winslow House, River Forest, Illinois

Winslow House is my favorite because the front is simple, while the back is a true expression of FLW.
—Guest Virginia Opitz

NATHAN MOORE HOUSE

It is one of the wonderful works done by Frank Lloyd Wright by his imagination and vision
—Guest MAYUR DAVE

Great thought

My ambition is to do this type of building. Fallingwater is the masterpiece. It's like the architect, God, created earth and universe. Undoubtedly the one and only.....Fallingwater....its design is almost equal to a place in heaven.

Fallingwater

Fallingwater is my absolute favorite. I was given the lego set for christmas and have become fascinated with FLW since.
—Guest Nick M
