See Scores of Unbuilt Frank Lloyd Wright Structures That Have Been Computer-Rendered With Incredible Realism
David Romero uses modeling software to show how the celebrated architect's unbuilt projects, like a mile-high tower in Chicago, might have turned out.
Of the more than 1,000 structures that the celebrated American architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed, more than half were unbuilt—or worse, demolished—by the time of his death in 1959 at the age of 91.
But now, Spanish architect David Romero has collaborated with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to show how those projects might have looked today. The new renderings include the Gordon Strong Automobile Objective, a planetarium proposed in 1925, as well as the National Life Insurance building, the floating cabins of Summer Colony on Lake Tahoe, and his most famous unrealized structure, a mile-high skyscraper in Chicago known as the Illinois.
