Frank Lloyd Wright Visitors Center at Florida Southern College
Florida Southern College is home to the world's largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, boasting thirteen stunning Wright-designed structures. Design and construction began in 1938 and continued until Wright's passing in 1959, making this site an architectural chronicle of Wright's most recognized, lauded, and innovative design features. It includes many one-of-a-kind components, such as Wright's largest water feature, his only constructed planetarium, his final commissioned work of stained glass, and his only theatre-in-the-round--an acoustic marvel that wows many visitors. Many of the structures are still functioning buildings within the College, but one, the Usonian Faculty House, was constructed in 2013 based on Wright's plans from 1938 to serve as a living museum, representing Wright's vision for modest, modern American living circa 1940. Often described as a hidden treasure of American and architectural history, this site is full of wonder and knowledge, not to be missed by the intellectually curious!
