Little House

Living Room from the Little House #1 Living Room from the Little House #2

The room that is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York originally was a living room in a vacation house in Minnesota. The Little family built the house in the early twentieth century; the building was completed in 1914. Before the demolition in 1972, parts of the structure designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright were spared from destruction and are on display in three museums across America.

The interior walls of the living room, windows, the floor, the celling, and the furniture are here in full harmony. The room exemplifies the characteristic Wright's modern architecture. The abundance of natural light, empty center of the room, and furniture located in peripheral areas are parts of the coherent design. All these elements together create a sense of the intact spatial continuity.
