LAMA, the Los-Angeles-based auction house offers a Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian house for sale in its upcoming Modern Art & Design Auction on February 21st. Wright originally designed the red-brick residence for George D. Sturges, who acquired a land in Brentwood in 1938, as one of his sixty realized residential buildings called Usonian. Wright coined the term ‘Usonian’ to describe the moderately-priced homes he began designing during the Depression and continued building after WWII for the changing American society. Abbreviated for ‘the 'United States of North America,’ these homes represent Wright’s vision and contribution to the culture of homes for middle America during these decades. While the George D. Sturges Residence is one of sixty Usonian homes Wright had realized, it is the only one build in LA. Acquired by filmmaker James Bridges and his partner screenwriter and producer Jack Larson in 1967, the two famously had lived there since. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Bridges/Larson Foundation.
