WITH breakthroughs in space, in materials, in simplicity; THE Willey HOUSE provided the template for usonia and influenced MODERN architecture TO FOLLOW.
The WILLEY HOUSE, built by FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT, 1934
“Now came clear an entirely new sense of architecture, a higher conception of architecture…space enclosed…this interior conception took architecture away from sculpture, away from painting and entirely away from architecture as it had been known in the antique. The building now became a creation of interior space in light. And as this sense of the interior space as the reality of the building began to work, walls as walls fell away.”
— Frank Lloyd Wright, An American Architecture
