The Aline Barnsdall Hollyhock House in the East Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright originally as a residence for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall (built, 1919–1921). The building is now the centerpiece of the city's Barnsdall Art Park. In July 2019, along with seven other buildings designed by Wright in the 20th century, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is the first time modern American architecture has been recognized on the World Heritage List. The Hollyhock House is noted for developing an influential architectural aesthetic, which combined indoor and outdoor living spaces.

  • Took the outdoor tour where we learn a lot about the history of the house from the Docent. The outside is not typical of FLW but then you get to the inside: Wright at his best. Beautiful interior.....  more

  • I really enjoyed my experience but it just didn't make any sense as to why people weren't allowed to take any pictures. The curators were lovely people and very knowledgeable about the history of the property.
  • Worth every second there. If you're an architect or if you like architecture this is a must. Every inch of the house was carefully thought out and it's definitely worth visiting. Pictures will never show how interesting and detailed this house is. You can stay there as long as you want, the guides are more than lovely. You can ask them anything about the house and they will answer with kindness. Also it is very interesting to talk to them, so I'd encourage you to. Really enjoyable.
