Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide 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.
This design was adapted from a detail of one of several murals at Midway Gardens, an entertainment complex in Chicago that Frank Lloyd Wright designed in 1913. The Midway Garden included an indoor restaurant, dance hall, a five-tiered outdoor summer garden with band shell, a tavern, and a private club. He personally designed all elements in the complex including art glass, light fixtures, furniture, murals, all the way down to the napkin rings.
