Burlingham house, El Paso Texas, by Frank Lloyd Wright
Very much not a Frank Lloyd Wright house, yet it is exactly that. Well, sort of.
His only house designed using south-west USA’s indigenous adobe construction, Wright designed the house in 1941 as a modest 2400 square foot house to complement the rolling sands that
piled [the site] with sweeping sands, continually drifting in swirling lines that suggest waves of the sea.
It was finally built in 1985, 26 years after Wright’s death, as “a 4,900-square-foot sprawler .. [with] a swimming pool and underground garage” in a park-like setting that wouldn’t disgrace Pakuranga.
Not exactly what the great man had in mind.
Nonetheless, it is officially the world’s only Wright-designed adobe house. And you can own it for just US$4.75 million.
