"Tour It: La Miniatura

"Cast in Concrete: Frank Lloyd Wright in Pasadena

"Saturday, January 26, 2008, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

"Here is an extraordinary opportunity to tour Wright’s unique textile-block commission, La Miniatura (1923), originally envisioned as a Mayan ruin set in a jungle ravine. Rarely open to the public, this spectacular private home is a restoration in progress.

"Tour the main house, a mysterious and exotic blend of wood, stone and ironwork, and Lloyd Wright’s studio building, added in 1926.

"Lunch, available for purchase, will be served in the gardens in the shadow of La Miniatura.

"Frank Lloyd Wright said of this commission, 'I would rather have built this little house than St. Peter’s in Rome' Join us for this singular opportunity."
