Ennis house

Post by LFWrightFan »

Hey everybody, my first post. Does anybody know what's happening with the Ennis house? Since it was sold to Ron Burkle in 2011 there has been no news about it. Is it just pretty much abandoned right now or is there some restoration work going on?

I, too, have been wondering the same thing.

Considering the mess that house was when it sold, it looks like some progress is being made. At least the steel I-beams that held up the dining room appear to have been removed; that correction alone must have taken some engineering miracle, a ton of money and substantial time to achieve.

I must venture up there some day and check it out for myself.

Dreams and Realities of Frank Lloyd Wright: An Examination of Los Angeles’ Charles Ennis House

The Department of Art and Art History at St. Mary’s College of Maryland presents “Dreams and Realities of Frank Lloyd Wright: An Examination of Los Angeles’ Charles Ennis House,� a lecture by Scott Frank. The lecture will be held on Tuesday, Feb 25, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the college’s Boyden Gallery (2nd floor of Montgomery Hall).

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is arguably the most famous American architect. His love for nature as well as his brilliant aesthetic eye led him to dream up a number of experimental building systems and materials, which often makes the realities of caring for a Wright building extremely difficult.

As a way to explore these issues, Dr. Frank will focus on Wright’s Charles Ennis House, located in Los Angeles, which has been a residence, an historic building, and has also served as the location for over eighty screen appearances for TV, music videos, and several films including “Blade Runner� (1982), “Rush Hour� (1995), and “Firefly� (2005). This event is free and open to the public.
