Residence A at Barnsdall Art Park


As part of Frank Lloyd Wright`s first project in Los Angeles, Residence A, also referred to as “The Director`s House,” was originally envisioned by Aline Barnsdall to act as a smaller auxiliary residence for a theater director to the central Hollyhock House. Recognized as a Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument, the building was used as a center for youth activity known as the “Barnsdall Playground” and “Barnsdall Arts and Crafts Center” for more than 70 years after it was donated to the City of Los Angeles.
