Born in Wisconsin, USA, in 1867, FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT grew up to be America’s greatest and most innovative Architect. His legacy is one of America’s foremost cultural treasures. In 1940, he established The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to protect, preserve and administer his life’s work. In 1991, Architectural Record magazine published a list of the 100 most significant buildings in the world - 11 were by Frank Lloyd Wright.
In 1911, Avery Coonley, heir to an industrial fortune, commissioned Wright to build a playhouse on the Coonley House Estate, where Mrs. Coonley would teach kindergarten. The Coonley Playhouse windows were completed in 1912, incorporating images of balloons, American flags and confetti. The design used in these windows was artistically striking and represents Wright’s first departure from his signature style using only straight lines.
