Commissioned in 1939 by journalist Loren Pope, Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Pope-Leighey House in Alexandria, Virginia using four natural materials: wood, brick, glass, and concrete. The 1,200 square foot house feels much larger than its actual size. The house is now owned and operated by The National Trust for Historic Preservation and is open for tours from April - December. Info and more photos below the jump...
