The Charnley House
Jacobs House

The Larkin Building
La Miniatura
Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Charnley House in 1891. This was the first house that Wright helped design. He had helped Sullivan, who was the man that he was working for when he designed this house.
The Charnley House has three floors. The building is very symmetrical. There is a room on each side of it. An open space is in the middle of those two rooms. When you look up from the middle you can see the skylight above. That is the Charnley House.
The Imperial Hotel is in Tokyo. Wright planned it to have many floors, but he decreased the size because Tokyo is earthquake prone. It is a very famous hotel. That is about the Imperial Hotel.
Wright began to design the Imperial Hotel in 1915. It was finished in 1922. In 1923 there was an earthquake in Tokyo, but the Imperial Hotel was not damaged.
La Miniatura was deigned to be around a grand fireplace. It was also designed to look like it belongs where it is. It is in Pasadena, California. The exterior is concrete blocks. That is about La Miniatura.
Wright designed La Miniatura in 1921. He designed the house for Mrs. Alice Millard. California is earthquake prone, so in building the Imperial Hotel, Wright had experience. Mrs. Millard only had $10,000 to spend on the house, so Wright had to come up with a way to make something cheap look beautiful. He decided to use concrete blocks for the exterior of the house. He did because it was cheaper than most materials.
