A photograph taken around 1905 looking at the main door to the Hillside Home School building (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1901). In his book “In the Nature of Materials,” architectural historian Henry-Russel Hitchcock explained that the “use of native stone from the hills nearby, the adaptation to the hillside site, and the absence of all compromise with suburban domestic ideals already suggest the later domestic manner of Wright’s own Taliesin built on the next hill in 1911.” (Photo courtesy of the Wisconsin Historical Society, Whi (x3) 45779.)
It’s amazing that so many people have gotten tattoos of architectural designs, such as the floor plan of Taliesin I (Taliesin 1911-14) shown if you scroll down that webpage.
