Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 – 1959) is widely considered to be America’s greatest architect. He amazed the world with his architectural ingenuity and designs. His vision encompassed the buildings and residences he designed, as well as their landscaping, art glass, furniture, lighting and floor covering, to create a unified whole.
The Glencoe Desk Globe was adapted from Mr. Wright’s 1911 design for a large brick pedestal in Booth Park, for the town of Glencoe, Illinois. The project, never developed, included covered archway entrances, lights, troughs for watering horses, seating and sculptures.
