Ayn Rand Cottage, 1949
FRANK LLOYD WRIGTH
Ayn Rand´s fascination with architecture and Wright´s work goes a long way. In fact the main character of her book "The Fountainhed", Howard Roark, is based on the famous american architect.
In the late 40´s Rand ask Wright to design a house for her. The response from the architect was a daring design, reminiscent of his most prominent house, "Fallinwater".
This building seems like it has been born off the ground, it belongs to the site, and has a deep connection with the hill which its standing in.
The lodge has a timeless quality, it feels like it has been there all along, with the rock attached to the site and the cantilevers flying toward the void.
