Here we are in Buffalo, NY about to tour the famous Frank Lloyd Wright House called the Darwin Martin residence.  Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) designed the house and campus for the wealthy Buffalo businessman Darwin Martin in 1903-1905.  It is now a National Historic Landmark.  The design is from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie House period and is thought to be one of his finest.

You are greeted by a Welcome Center building on the complex which is a modern glass design that is the reverse of anything on the Frank Lloyd Wright house next to it.  One of the themes in the Darwin Martin house is Wisteria and here they have craftily draped the flowering plant on the horizontally lined wall nearby.
