frank lloyd wright's mark on the 'nati

the boulter house - 1 rawson woods circle

sale pending! 


BIG NEWS in Cincinnati this week with our **coming soon** listing of #theBOULTERhouse by the master of 20th Century architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright.  But Wright's influence on the Cincinnati built environment goes far beyond the 3 local homes that bear his signature (The Boulter House in Clifton, The Tonkens House in Amberley Village, and The Boswell House in Indian Hill).  Cincinnatimodern favorites Abrom and Benjamin Dombar lived with and studied with 'the master' for years and came back to their hometown ready, willing and able to spread Wright's principles of organic architecture.  Even when we tour a Dombar home that is more traditionally styled, there is always a little bit of Wright that we can spot - corner windows, indirect lighting, radiant heat, passive solar...the list goes on.  

Our colleagues and friends at the University of Cincinnati, professor emeritus Patrick Snadon and head DAAP librarian Elizabeth Meyer have put together a fabulous new website, Modernnati.com, to document the history of modernism in Cincinnati. Their first spotlight just so happens to be on Wright's influence in the Queen City.  Click here to get their expert take on this chapter in architectural history.
