Pearl palace

Like last week, let’s take a look at the an abondoned site. It’s an abandoned palace in Iran. This palace was  designed by William Wesley Peters – son-in-law of Frank Lloyd Wright and his protege – of Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. It has all the characteristics of what you can imagine of a mid-century Frank Lloyd Wright style palace.

Here’s a photo tour.

I’m a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright. The “logo” on my blog for a long time was constructed of letters taken from his architectural drawings.
