F. L. Wright's Textile Houses

15 September 2010

First he finished his Hollyhock House and the Imperial Hotel.

Then he began to push his ideas concerning patterned concrete blocks. 

Utilizing the textile block, Frank Lloyd Wright built four houses.

La Miniatura, the Ennis House, the Freeman House and the Storer House.


“What about the concrete block? 

It was the cheapest and ugliest thing in the building world. (...)

Why would it not be fit for a new phase of our modern architecture? 

It might be permanent, noble beautiful.
