Bazett House - Frank Lloyd Wright

    My favourite Wright houses as a 'group' are the Usonians -- small, for the most part, but perfectly formed, and conceealing a wealth of ingenuity.    
    The Bazett house of 1940 was laid out on a hexagon grid -- it is essentially 'hexagonised' version of the earlier Jacobs plan, which was the 'classic Usonian.'  
    More beautiful pictures and stories abut the Bazett house here and here, including a few notes on its construction.
