“designed by Frank Lloyd Wright”

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) designed a unique residential complex for wealthy Buffalo businessman Darwin D. Martin and his family between 1903-1905. The most substantial and highly developed of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie houses in the Eastern United States, The Darwin D. Martin House received National Historic Landmark status in 1986.  The house is considered by leading Frank Lloyd Wright scholars as one of Wright’s finest achievements of the Prairie period and, indeed, of his entire career. The complex consists of five interconnected buildings designed as a unified composition, including; the main Martin House and a pergola that connects it to a conservatory and carriage house with chauffeur’s quarters and stables, the Barton House, a smaller residence for Martin’s sister and brother-in-law, and a gardener’s cottage added in 1909.  The landscape design for the grounds of the complex is highly integrated with the overall composition of buildings.

So far this is the only Frank Lloyd Wright building i've seen in person and it's seriously breathtaking. The details he put into every corner and aspect of it is incredible. One look at this beautiful house and it's hard to deny that he was one of the greatest architects of all time.
