BUFFALO -- Two houses built by architect Frank Lloyd Wright for businessman Darwin Martin and his sister, Delta Barton, are being restored in this Lake Erie port city.
The renovations are part of a big push in recent years by the Rust Belt city to restore its architectural and landscape legacy.
Post-Gazette architecture critic Patricia Lowery takes viewers on a tour of the two Frank Lloyd Wright landmarks. The Martin home features an open floor plan that flows from room to room and Graycliff, on Lake Erie, has a water feature and cantilevered roofline that are a precursor of work that will be familiar to Pittsburghers who have toured Fallingwater.
