Come take a walking tour with me of Florida Southern College in Lakeland Florida. There is a museum there for Frank Lloyd Wright as he designed most of the campus and had it built in 1938+.  It is said they used local materials and made bricks with the help of student and local help even. See Frank Lloyd Wright at FSC.

This large building is at the center of the College is the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel and the interior was closed for massive restoration.  I cannot wait to go back in the future to see the inside too.  Notice there is a copper floral motif at the top edge of the roof.  This will be seen on many of the walkways and buildings on campus.

Here behind the building they have made many restored and reproduced bricks to replace the crumbling ones in the building.
