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.
Time and time again, Dan Nichols has told the story of how he became an architect. “I first learned of Wright when I was about 10 years old growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, in an old magazine that featured his work. His houses were a big deal to me,” Nichols once told Curbed. “It all tied together, and I pursued a career in architecture.”
