A significant part of Los Angeles’ storied architectural history, Hollyhock House—a National Historic Landmark—is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most magnificent masterpieces marking his first foray into architecture in Los Angeles. Hollyhock House boasts a lyrical and poetic style of architecture “California Romanza,” or “freedom to make one’s own form,” which complements LA’s significance as a trendsetter in the arts and architecture space. Underscoring its importance as one of the world’s architectural gems, Hollyhock House is now among a group of 10 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings to have become the first works of modern architecture nominated by the United States to the United Nation’s Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List.
