Pacific Dwelling for Mr. and Mrs. Morris, San Francisco, 1945
VC Morris commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build a gallery on Maiden Lane in San Francisco. While working together, Wright proposed this mansion for Morris’ dramatic lot in San Francisco’s Seacliff neighborhood. Morris considered Wright’s first design (top) too elaborate. He asked Wright to dial it back. The bottom image shows the toned-down version haha. It was never built, and Morris’ Xanadu Gallery is Wright’s only San Francisco building.
