Lykes House - Frank Lloyd Wright


The Lykes House was the last to come from Frank Lloyd Wright's hand: he died in April 1959 just two weeks after sketching out the basic form of this desert house wrapped around a mountain . He was ninety-two.
The drawings and the 1994 renovations were completed by Wright apprentice John Rattenbury.

Wow, that's really beautiful - even if from some angles it does look like a WWII gun emplacement fortification!
