California: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Low-Cost High Design

 

Of La Miniatura, which he built for rare-book dealer Alice Millard in Pasadena, Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “I would rather have built this little house than St. Peter’s in Rome.” It was an extravagant statement, even for the self-assertive architect, who made the masterpiece (AD, December 1994) out of concrete blocks he called “the cheapest (and ugliest) thing in the building world.” Set in an arroyo near the Rose Bowl, the residence consists of a three-bedroom, three-bath main house and a studio designed by his son Lloyd in 1926. $7.5 million. 310-428-6755

 

Call Crosby Doe 310-428-6755.
