Another opportunity to experience the manifesto of Frank Lloyd Wright when the Kenneth & Phyllis Laurent House in Rockford, Illinois will be open to the public to coincide with what would have been Wright’s 147th birthday (June 8th). What is extraordinarily interesting about this house that it is the only building ever designed by Wright for a
person with a disability as Kenneth Laurent was a disabled, wheel-chair-bound World War II veteran who, at the prompting of his wife, contacted Wright asking him to design a home to meet his unique needs. The Laurents commissioned the home in 1948 and lived there from 1952 until early 2012, when the home and all of its original Frank Lloyd Wright-designed furniture was acquired by the Laurent House Foundation and added to the National Register of Historic Places.
