winslow house model - mini
the William H. Winslow House was Frank Lloyd Wright's first realised commission, in 1893, as a recognised independent architect at the young age of 26. the massing of this elegant architecture uses cast stone, tapestry brick, and terra cotta friezes, which became architectural elements in his later homes for the American Midwest prairie. another feature characteristic of Wright's Prairie Style is the gentle sloping and projecting roof. he also introduced the fireplace as an integral part of the domestic scene, a basement that does not protrude above ground, and open-swinging windows. these innovations for the time further express the mastery of Wright's craft. this Frank Lloyd Wright Collection product is authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona, U.S.A.
