The Joyful Rejuvenation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fawcett House

A lecture by Carrie Cox, owner of the Randall Fawcett house in CA.

A grand example of a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian design, the Randall Fawcett house won the Wright Spirit Award in October ’19 from the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, which is the highest accolade you can get in the Wright world. The lecture will include “before and after” shots of the restoration, original interior design plans for the house, photos showing how the Fawcett family actually furnished it, and current photos after Carrie Cox had the original-design furniture made for the house today.
