Frank Lloyd Wright: Yodoko Guest House 3

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 1 March 2007 in Abstract & Conceptual.

The house is set amongst trees and vegetation on a hillside, and sort of wraps itself around the hill. This fusion of the building with the natural surroundings is a particular theme of Wright's, an example of what he called Organic Architecture. Here's some information and links:
