An official Path Through History Site! Constructed between 1903 and 1905 as the home of Darwin and Isabelle Martin, the Martin House exemplifies Frank Lloyd Wright's "Prairie House" ideal and ranks as one of his finest residential works. Tours at the Martin House underscore how Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural genius is illustrated in timeless themes evident in his remarkable design: family, friendship, the meaning of home, and the American spirit as told through the story of Darwin D. Martin's patronage of America's greatest architect.
Through early October, 2021, see seven of celebrated ceramicist Jun Kaneko’s massive sculptures, placed throughout the historic landscaping of the Martin House. Kaneko is best known for pushing the boundaries of what is possible in ceramic. As part of an innovative collaboration between the Martin House and the Albright-Knox’s Public Art Initiative, the exhibition presents an opportunity to reimagine not only our relationship to Wright's architecture and the grounds but also to the experience of monumental sculpture.
You can also visit the Frank Lloyd Martin House estate virtually! Explore the videos on our YouTube channel from the comfort of your own home.
