Tour the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Tracy Residence

Tour the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Tracy Residence
Normandy Park, Washington
January 21 and 22, 2012

In 1955 Frank Lloyd Wright designed a unique Usonian house for Bill and Elizabeth Tracy for their beautiful waterfront site in Normandy Park. The “Usonian Automatic” included organic design features which were, by then, well known–red concrete floors, handmade custom concrete blocks, natural redwood and full height glass doors that open the house to the out-of-doors. The house receives natural light throughout the day via the perforated blocks creating interesting patterns of light throughout the day. This beautifully sited house-as-work-of-art has been well published and has Wright’s original furniture. The EcoHome Foundation is pleased to share the magic of this home with you.
