You Can Now Take Virtual Tours of 12 Incredible Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings
The online guides will give you an inside look at some of the architect's most storied work.
Though you're probably itching to get outside again amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, it's important to remember that there are a number of new ways to stay safe and adventure from the comfort of home. According to The Spaces, Frank Lloyd Wright buildings are some of the newest places you can explore virtually. "It is precisely at this time, when so many are shut inside, that we need to experience beauty and inspiration," the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy said.
A dozen of the famed architect's buildings are now offering digital tours of both the interior and exteriors of the spaces. The tours, also known as the #WrightVirtualVisits initiative, are in partnership between the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and Unity Temple Restoration Foundation. Each organization is posting videos of the landmark buildings on social media each Thursday at 12 p.m. central time for the weeks to come.
Some of the iconic buildings that will be featured in the campaign include Hollyhock House, Taliesen West, Unity Temple, Emil Bach House, Fallingwater, pictured here, and the Westcott House.
While you can already see an Instagram video from Justin Gunther, the director at Fallingwater, with Marta Wojcik at the Westcott House, the videos to come fill further help you explore some of the world's most renowned structures. "In these difficult times, we can all get some comfort from the beauty found in the places we care about the most," the post shared. "Since Fallingwater is closed to the public and Justin can't share the interior with you in person, he's giving us a glimpse of the exterior of the house and landscape. He looks forward to having Fallingwater back open for you to experience in person soon. For more info, Fallingwater.org."
