Wright Weekend at the National Building Museum

Frank Lloyd Wright Bust

If you are looking for architecture-related activities to do before traveling for Thanksgiving, take a look at the schedule for the National Building Museum’s Wright Weekend: A Celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright. To celebrate the release of Taliesin Diary: A Year with Frank Lloyd Wright, the first-ever publication of a diary by one of Wright’s apprentices, the Museum is hosting a weekend of Wright-related events, including the opportunity to see a dog house built from a Wright design and a documentary about Wright’s work in California. The event comes as news hits that a buyer for an endangered Wright property in Phoenix, which he designed for his son, has backed out of the deal.

And talking abut Wright houses for sale, have you seen this house listed for $20 million? The 5,000 square foot home is located on 11 acres on a private, heart-shaped island in Lake Mahopac in Putnam County,  N.Y.
