The Exhibition Usonian House was originally designed for the traveling exhibition “Sixty Years of Living Architecture: The work of Frank Lloyd Wright”. This Usonian House was built at the temporary pavilion constructed for the exhibition. The exhibition was held in New York City from October 22, to November 29, 1953 on the plot of ground on which the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum would later be built.
