Today's archidose #967

Thursday, June 8, 2017, is the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright's birth. To celebrate the architect and his buildings, my posts this week are devoted to Wright. To start, here are some photos by Ximo Michavila of the V. C. Morris Gift Shop (1948) in San Francisco. At the time of these photos, the building served as the Xanadu Gallery, but it closed in 2015 and since last year preservationists have been working to protect the landmark building's interior and its many significant details.

    1. Great shots. I made it inside ca. 1997 but don't think I was able to pull of shots like yours, which make a good argument for landmarking the interior.

  2. I grew up in the Bay Area and visited this building numerous times. It is a gem.
