Frank Lloyd Wright Building from 1939 Finally Built

54 years after the death of Frank Lloyd Wright, Florida Southern College, home to the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world, opened another structure designed by the famed architect last Friday. Originally called the Usonian house, it was envisioned as a professor's home in 1939 but wasn't built until this year using blueprints left by Wright.

The building is made up of nearly 2,000 interlocking textile blocks that create 47 shapes, with about 5,000 stained-glass inserts as well as built-in furniture.
