  • "Perhaps there is no more intimate exercise of professional calling for architects than the opportunity to design a residence for their children. Frank Lloyd Wright did more than once have occasion to create homes for his family, and one of the most eloquent expressions of these buildings is the house for son David Wright and his wife Gladys in Phoenix, Arizona."

It's nice to have a place close to home that I can bring others to and share the same inspiration that I take from Frank Llyod Wright's works. Part of an Architect's focus is to leave something that will withstand time and be appreciated by all, and this house is a beautiful piece of history that needs to be recognized as such. I fully support the David Wright House and hope for the best of luck on obtaining the permit." (this statement was posted on our Facebook page)

  • "It is so exciting to see this historically significant and beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright structure being restored In Phoenix, Arizona."
    - Barbara Burke

  • "I had the opportunity to see this residence in person. As all Frank Lloyd Wright's Architecture, the interior space has a strong emotional appeal. In order to comprehend the spirit of the house it is necessary to experience it by doing a walk through, allowing the time to discover how one space flows into the next one. This is enhanced by the spiral, circular design and the ramps. The significance of the exterior shape of the house can be understood as the result, after experiencing the interior spaces. It also proves that a concrete block house can appear to be floating in space."
    - Helena Arahuete, Architect

  • "Frank Lloyd Wright was the greatest American architect of the 20th century, and he put his distinctive stamp on every kind of building, from churches to civic centers, across the USA. Phoenix is fortunate to have three key works: the Arizona Biltmore, where another architect interpreted Wright's ideas; Taliesin West, the architecture school that Wright began in the 1930s in Scottsdale; and the spiral house he designed for his son David in 1950."
