Numerous city officials and dignitaries attended a ribbon cutting last Friday to mark the reopening of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House, located at Barnsdall Art Park, which is now among a group of 10 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings to have become the first works of modern architecture nominated by the United States to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
After undergoing a three-year restoration, the house has been renovated and restored to its former glory, representatives said.
To mark the reopening of the Hollyhock House, Mayor Eric Garcetti and Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, led the ribbon cutting ceremony with the project’s collaborators, which was followed by 24-hour public opening, where locals and visitors had a unique opportunity to experience the house during the day or at night. The Hollyhock House — a National Historic Landmark — was Wright’s first foray into architecture in Los Angeles.
