About the Glessner House: The interiors of Glessner House demonstrate the nearly perfect collaboration between the architect and his clients. Designed during the so-called Gilded Age, when Americas newly rich industrialists were living in modern-day castles, Glessner House represents architect Henry Hobson Richardsons response to the Glessners desire for a simple, comfortable home that retained the cozy feeling of their previous home.
About Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House: Built between 1903 and 1905, the Martin House was designed by acclaimed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright as the city home for Buffalo business executive Darwin D. Martin and his family. The Martin House is characterized by its spatial openness, horizontal planes, pier and cantilever construction, and palette of natural colors and materials. It is considered one of the great achievements of Wrights career, resulting from a remarkable partnership between client and architect.
