The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, in partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Unity Temple Foundation, recently announced that it will be holding Wright Virtual Visits, a social media initiative that will allow the public to view Frank Lloyd Wright sites that are currently closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Foundation, a dozen partner sites from around the country will allow virtual visitors every Thursday at 10 a.m. PST.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, in partnership with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Unity Temple Foundation, recently announced that it will be holding Wright Virtual Visits, a social media initiative that will allow the public to view Frank Lloyd Wright sites that are currently closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each site will also share a short video tour of another site via social media, to help facilitate people “discover and experience new places and raise public awareness for all of these important landmarks.”

“It is precisely at this time, when so many are shut inside, that we need to experience beauty and inspiration,” said Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy Executive Director Barbara Gordon.

“Wright’s works bring people together in harmony with the natural world, reminding us that we are all connected, even when we’re apart.”

The Wright sites participating in the initiative include:

  • Ebsworth Park;
  • Emil Bach House;
  • Fallingwater;
  • Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy;
  • Gordon House;
  • Graycliff;
  • Hollyhock House;
  • Martin House;
  • Samara;
  • Seth Peterson Cottage;
  • Taliesin;
  • Taliesin West;
  • Unity Temple;
  • Westcott House; and
  • Willey House.

“During this time when so many people feel disconnected from the world, we know that when people experience Frank Lloyd Wright designs, it brings them inspiration and happiness,” said Jeff Goodman, Vice President of Communication and Partnerships at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

“We hope that taking a virtual visit to any of these Wright designs around the country will bring a little joy to their day and bring them into our community that remains connected around our shared passion for beauty, architecture, nature and design.”

Nice concept, though the implementation seems overly complex. I'll give it a try today @ lunchtime.
