CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. — A southeast Missouri home, fashioned in the same organic style of noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright, has earned a place on the National Register of Historic Places.
Southeast Missouri State University graduate students Laura Williams and Caryn Guth spent the past year working to obtain the designation.
The Southeast Missourian (http://bit.ly/1RIoMPz ) reports that the one-story home was built in 1963 using an irregular V-shaped floor plan built into a steeply sloped lot.
Steven Hoffman of the university’s historic preservation program says the house has a Wright feel because it uses a variety of shapes and brings outdoor elements inside, appearing to rise up from the landscape almost like a natural feature. It doesn’t conform to the more boxy approach of other contemporary homes.
