Shuffle Off to Buffalo, Pt. 2

Coincidentally, yesterday's Wall Street Journal, the May 21 edition, featured an article about Frank Lloyd Wright's work in Buffalo, N.Y. The article, by Richard B. Woodward, discusses in detail the Martin House, pictured below. Mr. Wright designed the home between 1903 and 1905 for the Darwin D. Martin family. The house is comprised of a number of structures and was finished at 32,000 square feet. It's huge.

As Mr. Woodward notes in his article, in addition to the many projects by Frank Lloyd Wright in Buffalo, the city has a beautiful park system by Frederick Law Olmsted, credited as the founder of American landscape architecture; the Guaranty Building designed by Louis H. Sullivan, considered the "Dean of American Architects"; the Kleinhans Husic Hall, designed by Eero Saarinen; and the Albright-Knox Gallery and Burchfield-Penny Art Center.

As Thursday's post stated, there is a lot of cool stuff to see and do in Buffalo.
