The Daylight Bank

This is a commission I made last year for the FLLW Foundation Quarterly Magazine, it is the Valley National Bank, a small bank office that FLLW designed in Tucson, Arizona in 1957. As always, Wright’s ideas were ahead of his time by designing a bank in which it was possible to access without having to…

Pink Guggenheim

Once a work of art is finished it is difficult to imagine that at some point in history it could have been different. Reading this article, it is interesting to know that the Guggenheim was not always the bright white color with which we can observe it today, the original color used to be beige,…

Spaulding Print Room

William S. and John T. Spaulding commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright in 1916 to design a room to store and display their incredible collection of Japanese prints. Assembled over many years, it consisted of over 6000 prints, all of the absolute highest quality and rarity. It was a collection that Wright was intimately familiar with. When…

Four Dimensions Trinity Chapel

Recently I have been collaborating with the companies Unreal Engine and HP and now we can show you the Trinity Chapel in all his glory through Virtual Reality. It has been a very interesting experience to work on exporting my model from the original version that I created in 3dsMax and Vray to the Unreal…

Gordon Strong Automobile Objective

Frank Lloyd Wright was an enthusiastic car user all his life, and that taste was also reflected in his architecture. One of his designs in which this passion for the cars is more evident is the Gordon Strong Automobile Objective In recent months I have been collaborating with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in the…

E.A. Smith house in Oakland by Frank Lloyd Wright

This beautiful design for E.A. Smith unfortunately never came to be built.  As explained in Frank Lloyd Wright: The complete Works: The house for E.A. Smith, intended to be built in the northern pine forest of California, is a development of the fir-tree type cabin done for the Lake Tahoe Summer Colony in 1922. For…

Pauson house panoramas

I love panoramic images. I think they are very poetic and if there is a work that existed to be admired in this format, this work is the Pauson house. Panoramic images are especially appropriate when it comes to capturing the immensity of a natural landscape and the Arizona desert is no exception, with its rocky…

Trinity chapel in Norman by Frank Lloyd Wright

I fell in love with this chapel years ago because of its suggestive design.  It was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the University of Oklahoma in Norman but it was never built. The design starts from a misunderstanding between Wright and his client, a car dealer named Fred Jones, since he wanted an extension…

Larkin Vertical

The two drawings which appear at the beginning of this post where produced by Frank Lloyd Wright. They are separated several years in time and drawn in very different styles, but what catches my attention is the 1×3 format in which they are framed, used to emphasize the strong vertical proportions of the building design. Taking these two…
