What Houzz contributors are saying:

As mentioned earlier, architect Toshiko Mori designed a visitor center for the Martin House Complex. Competed in 2009, the building does not try to replicate the design of Wright's house, instead opting for glass walls that open up the whole interior to the house on the east side. The roof seems to magically float above the glass walls. It is actually an inverted hip roof (sloped on the underside) that is primarily supported on four columns in the middle of the building.
