The design is based on a previous Wright design for a cooperative in Detroit, Michigan, which never materialized due to the onset of World War II. The house is an example of Wright's Usonian genre of architecture, a style he envisioned to meet the needs of middle class families desiring a more refined architecture for their homes. The house is located at 1217 Skyline Dr SW, a short distance from two other Wright designs, the A. H. Bulbulian Residence and the James McBean Residence.Design Architect : Frank Lloyd Wright location:

Wright proposed the development in August 1940 for one of the largest remaining undeveloped tracts in Washington, known as the Dean Estates or Temple Heights. One version of the design called for 1,230 hotel rooms, 138 small apartments, parking for 1,500 cars, shops, and a theater - a diversity of uses almost never seen in structures of the time - all within a complex consisting of a broad base covering the whole site topped by 24 towers. The proposal was defeated primarily by zoning requirements that prevented a multi-purpose structure at the site and forbade towers from rising more than 110 feet. The planned towers would have been more than 200 feet tall. Today, the site is occupied by the Hilton Washington.Design Architect : Frank Lloyd Wright location:
