The restoration of a Frank Lloyd Wright residential structure in Canton, Ohio respects the iconic architect’s design intent. Two key design elements of the Usonian John J. Dobkins House — triangles and Asian influence — are respected in the restoration.
- Triangles. The home is a continuation of Wright’s use of geometry in architecture — an approach that resulted in memorable homes. The corners in the Dobkins House are not as efficient as those in a rectilinear home would be. But a Frank Lloyd Wright home is more than just space — it is a unique experience.
- Asian influence. Wright’s deep appreciation for Asian architecture is evident in the living room, which has Wright-designed Origami chairs, clean lines, and a visual connection to the outdoors.
