The Usonian House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, was unveiled on the campus of Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, adding to the world’s largest single-site collection of Wright’s completed buildings. This striking one-story house has many signature Wright features including cantilevered wooden beams, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and interlocking textile blocks inset with squares of colored glass.
