Pauson House - Frank Lloyd Wright

Rose Pauson's house by Frank Lloyd Wright (1939) was architecture for a desert climate in the days before air-conditioning changed the game.

Designed for the northern extremity of the Sonoma desert, the composition of desert stone and battered timber and deep shadow survived only three short years before being destroyed by fire.

The stone that remained made a delightful ruin (right).
