Frank Lloyd Wright and Beverly Hills Architecture

The work of Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the most prolific and highly regarded architects in American history, is mostly centered in the Midwest. But his signature architectural style can be found in Los Angeles. The Anderton Court Shops on Rodeo Drive are one particularly iconic locale within the city limits of Beverly Hills.

Anderton Court Shops was the last structure Wright designed in the Los Angeles area. Structurally, it stands out from nearby buildings with a “V” shaped front elevation. Originally designed to hold three storefronts, today this 3-story building features six shops. The white building with black accents was initially painted a buff color with copper-colored accents. The awning was a later addition.

Wright designed several other homes and buildings in Los Angeles, including the Hollyhock and Ennis Houses, which are often cited among the best of Wright’s design work.
