At Long Last, a Gorgeous Online Guide to Frank Lloyd Wright's Life and Work

New, 1 comment

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has got a brand new website that makes the legendary architect's extensive works infinitely more accessible, in a visual style he might appreciate. As Bonnie Siegler, founder of Eight and a Half, the New York-based studio behind the redesign, tells Co.Design, they tried to incorporate as many cues from Wright as possible—emphasizing, for example, the rust red color of Wright's signature tiles, and adopting Neutraface, the typeface inspired by lettering seen on the buildings of Richard Neutra, another modernist great who once worked in Wright's Wisconsin studio.

Some highlights of the new site include a comprehensive, searchable database of Wright's works. It can be browsed in map, image, or list form, and filtered by building type, status, time period, style, and geographic region. There's also a nifty visual timeline of Wright's life. Find it all here.
