If you are a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright and stuck at home like the rest of us, it’s now possible to tour the Wright masterpiece, Hollyhock House, from the safety and comfort of your own home.
Located in Barnsdall Park, Hollyhock House is one of Los Angeles’ most cherished cultural landmarks, and was Just this July added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Now the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, working with the Department on Disability and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation have created a “virtual accessibility experience.” Using cutting edge virtual technology, they have created a virtual tour which you can access through you web browser. (The new tech also provides a creative solution for persons with disabilities.) Click here to take the tour: hollyhockhousevirtual.org
For anyone interested in more the DCA has also made the Hollyhock House Archive available on here: hollyhockhousearchive.org The archive is a treasure trove of material including Wrights original drawings and blueprints, as well as documents related to later renovations, restorations, and additions.
Even while sheltering at home, there is no reason not visit this stunning architectural treasure today.
