Wingspread was designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright for Herbert Fisk Johnson, Jr. and built in 1938-1939 in the village of Wind Point near Racine, Wisconsin. Wingspread is no longer a residence; it was donated by Johnson and his wife to The Johnson Foundation in 1959 as an international educational conference facility.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989.

    The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was Frank Lloyd Wright. He had such a distinctive style. Great shot of this!

    Thanks. Wright does have a very distinctive style which is still modern even today. Amazing for a man who was born just two years after the end of the Civil War. WAY ahead of his time.
