Another architecture superstar to leave his mark on Los Angeles is Frank Lloyd Wright
. He completed the Hollyhock House
--located in Barnsdall Art Park--in 1921. The home was built for theatre director and heiress Aline Barnsdall. Stylistically, it features nods to one of Wright's favorite styles: pre-Columbian. The Hollyhock House has another distinction vis-a-vis Los Angeles history: it was the famed architect's first LA project.
