The David and Gladys Wright House Launches Virtual Tour

Zach Rawling | Feb 27, 2017

The David and Gladys Wright House online tour allows visitors from around the world to virtually experience the home in Phoenix, Arizona.

The David and Gladys Wright House (DWH) has launched a new tool to appeal to the global interest of the home in Phoenix, Arizona.

While public tours of the home are temporarily closed – as we work on securing a partnership and establishing cultural programming with a known philanthropic institution – the DWH will offer website visitors a glimpse into what is considered Frank Lloyd Wright’s last residential masterpiece.

Situated near the base of Camelback Mountain, the home was designed by Wright for his son David and daughter-in-law Gladys. The home was originally titled, “How to Live in the Southwest,” in Wright’s plans.

A map of the home, as seen below, allows users to pick a point in or outside the home, and see photos of that area. Web visitors can see in fine detail the unique dwelling’s circular patterns, hand-cut Philippine mahogany, custom-designed furnishings, as well as its pastoral setting near the base of Camelback Mountain. The virtual tool also contains archival photos, allowing users to travel back in time to the 1950s.

The DWH invites you to explore this tool and learn more about what the City of Phoenix, Historic Preservation describes as, “the most significant work within the City of Phoenix by the most significant architect in American history.”
