More Views of Nathan G. Moore House|
333 Forest Avenue
After the disastrous Christmas Day fire of 1922,
Moore retained Wright to design plans for its reconstruction.
Wright's new design retained the brick walls, but above them he erected roofs
that were even taller and more acutely pointed than those of the original house!
Hidden behind the outward Gothic appearance of the house are elements of the exotic expressionistic style of Wright's Japanese and California years. It is especially interesting to compare the facades of this house with Wright's Imperial Hotel design. Go Back.
