Whenever PrairieMod needs historic materials related to Organic Architecture, The Scott Architectural Archive is an amazing go-to resource. Luckily, the Archive had some slides of the David & Gladys Wright home from the late 1950s, which show it in its relatively new condition (repleat with furnishings, including the famous polychrome rug).

The concrete block home was an architectural marvel in its day and still is over 60 years later. Hopefully we can marvel at it for decades to come.
