What Houzz contributors are saying:

Like Wright's Prairie-style houses, the visitor center has a roof that extends well beyond the walls to provide shelter around the building and shade the glass and interior from the summer sun. The glass and roof may not mimic Wright's design, but they reference it in a contemporary idiom and set up a frame of reference for the project across the driveway.
