The Pope-Leighey House is a classic example of Usonian architecture and of mid-20th century design. The home was a manifesto of Wright’s belief in American design for the people, unburdened by past architectural traditions. Wright’s innovative use of four natural materials created a sense of a large, more spacious abode – in only 1,200 square feet. The house today tells the story of Frank Lloyd Wright’s innovative designs for a modestly-sized single-family house and how two families adapted the dwelling to fit their lifestyle.
