Built for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, Hollyhock House is Frank Lloyd Wright's first project in Los Angeles. Its namesake is abstracted and geometricized in much of the house's design, including exterior walls and interior furniture. The house was the centerpiece of a mostly unrealized Wright master plan for a theater community set on a thirty-six acre site, "Olive Hill." Wright left much of the supervision of construction of Hollyhock House to his son, landscape architect Lloyd Wright, and to architect Rudolf Schindler, as Wright himself was working on the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo (since destroyed).
