millard house

from frank lloyd wright, westworld posted in art and design by chewing_the_scenery

Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built the Millard house in 1923.

He built four Mayan Revival-style houses like this in the Los Angeles area in the early 1920s. The Ennis House, which has appeared in dozens of movies and tv shows, is probably the most familiar of this textile-block design.

You can see the Millard House in HBO’s Westworld as the house Arnold is constructing for his family, and it’s also where Ford builds (and Delores tests) Bernard.
