| Perched on an East Hollywood hill
Aline Barnsdall commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design the Hollyhock House. The inspiration for the name and design stemmed from her favorite flower, the Hollyhock. You can see references to the flower everywhere. You can also see Wright's genius fusion of earth, water, fire and air structural elements throughout the house. It is the definition of indoor/outdoor living.

You don't get to see the entire house but you do get a great sense of everything from the parts open to the public. Totally worth checking out. It really gives great insight to this master architect's work.
