Description [edit]
Built in 1916, Frank Lloyd Wright's Bogk house makes for great drive-by sightseeing. Influenced by the abstractions of Cubist sculpture, this house has a massive exterior of brick and cast concrete combined with leaded glass. Embodying Wright's traditional focus on horizontal movement, the interior is a fluid succession of rooms sprawling
under a low-lying ceiling. Unfortunately, as the house is privately owned and not open to the public, you'll have to resort to your own imagination for viewing the interior. That aside, the exterior is eye candy enough to inspire and astound.
