Happy Birthday Frank Lloyd Wright

In honor of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birthday AIANJ was able to connect AIANJ member, Dan Nichols, AIA, with Curbed Philadelphia to showcase the architect’s and his wife’s home.  Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1950 the JA Sweeton residence was designed on a budget.  The homeowners recently completed a restoration to repair the Usonian Home.

His houses were a big deal to me,” Nichols once told Curbed. “It all tied together, and I pursued a career in architecture.”
