FOUND FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT, SCOTTSDALE, AZ
Welcome to the DAVID and GLADYS WRIGHT HOUSE in Scottsdale, AZ.
David’s daddy-O, Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the home for his son and daughter-in-law in 1952. It’s the new superstar in the galaxy of Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterworks.
Thankfully, it was recently saved from the wrecking-ball (shocking, but true) and is currently being faithfully restored and readied for public tours, for the first time.
Whatta thrill to be invited on a private tour of the home, guided by one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s granddaughters.
That’s like going to Disneyland with Walt Disney’s granddaughter. Which, btw, reminds me of when I had the privilege of meeting two of Walt Disney’s granddaughters after my show the Disney Family Museum…. the first thing I said to them after “its so nice to meet you,” was … “Have you ever been to Knott’s Berry Farm?” YIKES !!!
Speaking of Phoenix, AZ, look for this delightful desert metropolis to emerge in the next few years as a mecca of mid-century modern architecture.
The east, west, north and south of this oh-so-hot town is overflowing with a seemingly infinite supply of divine design quickly being rediscovered and reinvented by style enthusiasts and entrepreneurs.
