Architecture: Bloomberg Visits the Darwin Martin House
Daniel Billy of Bloomberg came to Buffalo to visit the famed Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin Martin House and left highly impressed. Darwin Martin was one of the legendary employees of Buffalo’s own Larkin Soap Company and had initially connected with Wright to design the Larkin Administrative Building. After becoming friends, Wright designed Martin’s new home in 1905 for a cost of $175,000 ($4.2 million adjusted today) and christened it his “domestic symphony.”
Furthermore Billy recognized Buffalo’s economic rebound calling the Darwin Martin House the crown of the city’s rebirth. Billy toured the city visiting other architectural landmarks while the theme of Buffalo’s renaissance is woven throughout the entire 991 word article.
