[As seen on curbed]
Frank Lloyd Wright’s work in the United States, and to a slightly lesser extent, Japan, is well known. But the famous architect has quite a few admirers in Europe as well.
In 2013, English electrical engineer Dr. Hugh Pratt petitioned the village of Wraxall, England, to allow him to construct a Wright design on a 12-acre site. The petition was rejected by the local council, concerned that the curved, modern home would stick out and be a distraction, and wasn’t “innovative” enough to warrant an exception to built on the town’s greenbelt. It’s too bad, since Pratt’s efforts (which began in 2004 and has cost him more than $150,000 or just about N 30, 000, 000) may have been one of the last chances to see an unbuilt Wright design realized.
While the council’s decision appear final, with the help of Archilogic, a firm that specializes in creating 3D models for architecture and real estate,(remember the Don Draper Apartment?) it’s possible to take a virtual walkthrough of the home.
