Create an itinerary including Hollyhock House
The Aline Barnsdall Hollyhock House in the East Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright originally as a residence for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall (built, 1919–1921). The building is now the centerpiece of the city's Barnsdall Art Park. In July 2019, along with seven other buildings designed by Wright in the 20th century, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is the first time modern American architecture has been recognized on the World Heritage List. The Hollyhock House is noted for developing an influential architectural aesthetic, which combined indoor and outdoor living spaces.

  • Took the outdoor tour where we learn a lot about the history of the house from the Docent. The outside is not typical of FLW but then you get to the inside: Wright at his best. Beautiful interior.....  more

  • The project would have been magnificent but the sponsor got tired of architect’s delays and astronomical numbers over budget. What remains is a beautiful park with a small museum and a Frank Lloyd...

  • I love to give positive reviews and I avoid giving negative reviews but my advice is, avoid this place, at least for now. The exterior and the surrounding park look terrible, as if they have been neglected for quite some time. Maybe the interior is nice but it is still closed. I understand covid is a legitimate concern however almost every other museum in the nation has implemented appropriate mitigation procedures and have been open for quite some time now, so I don't know what the issue is here.
  • Cool landmark. Worth the $7 admission to get it and tour it. Would be nice if I was able to snap some images inside.
  • A stunning piece of important architecture. it's not a long tour but if you appreciate Craftsman prairie style you'll love this house.
  • A fun visit to an iconic landmark. The only thing preventing a higher rating is that portions are still closed for renovations.
  • Beautiful fascinating architecture. A must see. Spectacular views. Wright was such a genius. Wish I could live in one of the homes he designed.
