In one of his most important contributions to the history of mid-century architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright designed his Usonian houses as economical and modest, for middle income clients. From all Usonian houses, his Auldbrass Plantation, built in Yemassee, South
Carolina has a special place in the legacy of the architect. Since purchasing the house in the 80s, filmmaker Joel Silver has been meticulously restoring this masterpiece according to Wright’s vision. It was the only Southern plantation he design, and other than the main house, it also consists of a guest house and cabins, a caretaker's residence, staff cabins, a barn, stables, kennels for dogs, a ''dining barge'' floating in a pond on the property and an aviary. All of this is unified by one material: cypress.
