20 Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings You Can Tour Virtually

Including Falling water, Taliesin, Unity Temple, Taliesin West, and Hollyhock, discover some of Wrights’ most treasured buildings
For architecture lovers who have always wanted to make the pilgrimage to Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece buildings but haven’t yet had the chance, now is the opportunity. As millions around the globe continue to quarantine at home and find themselves with more time on their hands, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, in partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and the Unity Temple Restoration Foundation, have introduced their new joint initiative, #WrightVirtualVisits, which presents video and 3D tours of 20 of Wright’s most treasured buildings, including HollyhockFallingwater, Taliesin, and more. “It is precisely at this time, when so many are shut inside, that we need to experience beauty and inspiration,” says Barbara Gordon, Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy executive director. “Wright’s works bring people together in harmony with the natural world, reminding us that we are all connected, even when we’re apart.”

The project, which launched earlier this month, is spread across the social media channels of the various participating sites, in an effort to cross-promote all of Wright’s architectural gems. Every Thursday at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT through July 9, each site shares a video tour of another site. The tours are remarkably in-depth and informative, as they’re often given by the directors of each house. The foundations in charge of the project hope the virtual tours will encourage viewers to support the different structures so that they can continue to welcome visitors in person once again in the future. All of the public Wright sites have been impacted by the pandemic, between budget cuts and furloughed staff, and are relying on donations from supporters to continue their preservation efforts. “We hope that taking a virtual visit to any of these Wright designs around the country will bring a little joy to their day and bring them into our community that remains connected around our shared passion for beauty, architecture, nature, and design,” says Jeff Goodman, vice president of communication and partnerships at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Ahead, discover some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpieces from your home.
