Pandemic tourism: Take virtual tours of 12 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings

The #WrightVirtualVisits initiative is a social media collaboration between the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and Unity Temple Restoration Foundation. Over the coming weeks, every Thursday at 12 pm CST, these Wright organizations will be posting to their Instagram accounts short-segment tours of a different Wright-designed house.

So, you'll get the tours in snippets, which you'll be able to see collected all together via the #WrightVirtualVisits Instagram link. One especially cool part of this is that some of the videos will show areas of the buildings you wouldn't normally get to see as part of an in-person tour.

​Fallingwater Director Justin Gunther shares a video from his personal archive with Marta Wojcik at the Westcott House. In these difficult times, we can all get some comfort from the beauty found in the places we care about the most. Since Fallingwater is closed to the public and Justin can't share the interior with you in person, he's giving us a glimpse of the exterior of the house and landscape. He looks forward to having Fallingwater back open for you to experience in person soon.
