Frank Lloyd Wright designed this home in Wausau, and you can bid on the kitchen plans

A particularly appealing photo of Mr Wright appears in the article---one I'm not sure I've seen before.

It is interesting to find a Wright house being used as a corporate office: add that to the list of non-residential functions an historic residence might fulfill ?

Would seem to be a plan possible just about anywhere. William Zeckendorf saved Robie from possible demolition (at Wrights urging) and temporarily used it as headquarters for a project in the area. His biography mentions Wright's intent to take it over for his foundation, but he died too soon and Zeckendorf then deeded it to the U of Chicago.
