Avery Coonley House - Frank Lloyd Wright, 1907


The Coonley House was another of Wright's masterpieces from his 'Prairie House' era -- presently being restored.


And it was pictures such as these from Wright's 'Wasmuth' portfolio, published in Europe in 1910, that inspired a new generation of young European architects to take the scales from their eyes and the artifice from their work and learn to make their architecture sing.

And pretty soon, young Austrians like Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra were making their way to the US to work work with Wright and seek their fortunes.0423
