The architectural achievements of Frank Lloyd Wright are widely known, but it is less common knowledge that his son, Lloyd Wright, was an accomplished architect himself. He designed many prominent houses in Southern California between the 1920s and 1940s.
In an effort to raise awareness of the younger Wright's designs, the Los Angeles Time is reporting a new tour put on by historians from Pasadena's Gamble House is taking visitors around the Los Angeles area to some of the homes he designed.
Ted Bosley of the Gamble House told the news source that some of Wright's work was important for starting debate over the idea of modernism after World War II.
"Lloyd Wright managed to distinguish himself as an architect, yet he drew from his fathers genius and made it his own," he said. "In the homes on the tour, we get a sense of the evolution of his work from the early textured-block style to the modern world."
Lloyd Wright designed many prominent buildings in the area, including elements of the Hollywood Bowl, according to the amphitheater's website.
