Frank Lloyd Wright in Glencoe 2013-2015

2015 marked the centennial of Ravine Bluffs, a neighborhood development conceived by Frank Lloyd Wright. Located in the village of Glencoe, Illinois, Ravine Bluffs features several homes built by Wright including three distinctive concrete structures at the entrance points of the neighborhood.  These concrete structures showcase quintessential Wright design characteristics while maintaining their elegant function as planters and sculptural monuments.  Over the course of 100 years, environmental conditions, and age had taken their toll requiring a major act of conservation and restoration to return them to their intended appearance and preserve them for generations to come.  

We were proud to work on these important pieces spanning three consecutive summers.  

The song in this time-lapse is Time to Run by Lord Huron. Time-lapse video recorded and edited by Taylor Woods gives a window into our experience.
