Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is the greatest American Architect of all time. And I dedicate this page and its contents to his life and work. Please see his portrait below.
The photos included in this page are of six Usonian Houses and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, which the architect designed.
And he designed five of these houses as private residences for clients: the Curtis Meyer House, the Herbert Jacobs House, the Laurent House, the Goetsch-Winckler House and the Fieman House.
But the sixth house, the Exhibition Usonian House, served another purpose.
Mr. Wright’s Exhibition Usonian House
And he originally designed the Exhibition Usonian House for the traveling exhibition “Sixty Years of Living Architecture: The work of Frank Lloyd Wright”. And the organizers built the Usonian House at the temporary pavilion they constructed for the exhibition, and they held the exhibition in New York City from October 22, to November 29, 1953. Also, they held the exhibition on the plot of ground on which others later built the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

And construction of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum finished in 1959. And the museum opened its doors to the public on October 21, in the same year.
