Tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Walker House
The Conservancy is hosting a rare tour of one of Wright’s most exquisite private residences, the Walker House.
Reaching out from a rocky promontory into Carmel Bay, the Walker House is one of the most unique among Wright’s 300-plus private houses. Designed in 1948 for Mrs. Clinton Walker, it is one of the only Wright buildings in a coastal environment. Its arrow-shaped plan has a hexagonal copper roof resting on triangular Carmel stone walls that resemble a ship’s prow projecting into the ocean. Its hexagonal living room is framed in reverse-stepped glass panels that afford panoramic views of the coastline.
A special evening reception limited to 25 guests on Thursday, Aug. 23 ($250 per person) will include a private tour of the house with hors d’oeuvres and fine wines enjoyed on the prow as the sun sets into the bay. A truly unforgettable experience. Small group tours on Friday, Aug. 24 ($125 per person) allow a personal experience of the house.
Join us for this special event to be inspired by the work of one of the greatest architects in history, with all proceeds supporting the important work of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. Attendance is strictly limited.
