“Every great architect is – necessarily – a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.” ― Frank Lloyd Wright

Located in downtown Florence and a short drive from The Factory is the Rosenbaum House – designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, it one of only 26 of Wright’s pre-World War II Usonian homes in the United States. The warm ambiance and simple, yet striking lines of the Rosenbaum House was the perfect backdrop for Alabama Chanin’s newest Leisure pieces. (You can see these photographs on our Leisure page and the Journal.) This week we explore the life and works of the man behind the design of the Rosenbaum House and countless other celebrated structures across the country.
