Wright Virtual Visits | When One Door Closes


“The mission of an architect is to help people understand how to make life more beautiful, the world a better one for living in, and to give reason, rhyme, and meaning to life.”

Frank Lloyd Wright.


Have you ever wondered how your home would transform if your favorite architect redesigned it?

I have. And I always go with the Wright look. Fireplace in the center, built-in furnishings, open spaces with skylights and clerestory windows. These are some of the elements you will see in Frank Lloyd Wright’s smaller residences. 

He was not only great at producing incredibly inspiring and creative works, but he was also good at self-promotion. He is probably the most well-known American architect of all time. During his seven-decade long career, he designed more than a thousand houses, original and innovative churches, offices, hotels, museums, schools, and structures.

Many Frank Lloyd Wright sites, which are generally open to the public, had to close their doors due to COVID-19. After virtually reopening – on April 2nd – every Thursday, they share short video tours via social media, highlighting Frank Lloyd Wright-designed houses, free of charge. The opening of another door brings new audiences, even from faraway places. How do I know? I took a trip to Buffalo, New York, to visit the Martin House. One more thing crossed off my bucket list. At least, to some extent.


The wonderful world of Frank Lloyd Wright is more accessible in the time of quarantine; even today, he is helping us to understand how to make life more beautiful.


Pour yourself a glass of wine, turn off your phone, and take a look around the Martin House!

Still thirsty? 😉 Find the list of the participating websites at SaveWright.org/Wright Virtual Visits for more tours.
