1:12 Scale Freeman Concrete Textile Blocks (16pk) - Frank Lloyd Wright Collection
The design of this 1:12 scale miniature concrete textile block is adapted from the Frank Lloyd Wright Freeman (1924) textile block. The Freeman House was built with 12,000 cast concrete blocks on a steep Hollywood Hills site. The Freeman House was lived in by the original owners until 1986 when it was donated to the USC School of Architecture. Up until the 1980s, the Freemans opened up their house as a "salon" to artistic and political pursuits.
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. His work heralded a new thinking in architecture, using innovation in design and engineering made possible by newly developed technology and materials. His creative ability extended far beyond the border of architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.
A portion of the purchase price supports the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation's work to advance the legacy of America's greatest architect, including educational programs, scholarship, and the preservation of Taliesin and Taliesin West for future generations.
