Modular housing designs by Frank Lloyd Wright
ROBERT STEUTEVILLE    MAY. 1, 2000
Modular housing designs by Frank Lloyd Wright which have not been built in 80 years are getting a renaissance in Washington Square, a housing development which broke ground in February in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The design of Wright’s American System Built homes has been updated by the firm he founded, Taliesin Architects. The units in Washington Square will range from 1,260 to 1,630 square feet. Up to 135 single family houses will be built close to the sidewalk, featuring front and back porches and garages on interior courtyards. The $3.5 million project is funded by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, a state agency that funnels 1.25 percent of gambling profits from Trump casinos into revitalization and redevelopment in Atlantic City and other blighted areas in the state.
