Yet another astonishing manifestation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s structural genius, this building looks almost like a modern day sacred temple. It appears he may have used Mayan influences in his design, on request from Charles Ennis, and Wright’s ‘prairie house’ style of colour-tone transition from dark at the bottom to light at the top is prevalent here. In Wright’s own words: "In the building, each separate portion of the building devoted to a special purpose asserts itself as an individual factor in the whole. The completed whole crowns the end of a high ridge in Hollywood."
