carddetail
This set of cards illustrates five of Frank Lloyd Wright's most well known houses depicted through symbols. I chose to focus on the landscape and natural, local materials that inspired the design of each house. For example, Fallingwater is represented by Pennsylvania's native Rhododendron flower, which inhabits the wooded surrounding the house. In contrast, Wright's Hollyhock house is expressed through the Hollyhock flower which directly inspired various architectural and sculptural motifs in the house- most notably the geometrically abstracted flower molding encircling the outside of the building. Furthermore, the cards are held together with a natural paper band and feature the architect's signature, as well as a font similar to that used on Wright's blueprints.
