Thousands of visitors flock to restored Frank Lloyd Wright house

An architectural masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in the hills of Hollywood has been restored and opened to the public.

Thousands of people visited Mayan-inspired Hollyhock House in Los Angeles, which was completed in 1921 for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall and is considered one of Wright’s masterpieces.

Some waited as long as 3 ½ hours in the middle of the night to get to the front of the line.

“Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House is a crown jewel of Los Angeles architecture,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

“Restoring this landmark to its original glory is a great example of how the city can preserve its unique history while providing Angelenos access to art in everyday places.”
