Designed in 1925 by Frank Lloyd Wright and despite advanced planning the Gordon Strong Automobile Objective was never built. Located on the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland, the building was designed to attract the increasing motoring public of post WWI America. Shaped as a circular ziggurat with concrete automobile ramps spiralling to the top and back down again, it was specifically designed for the automobile. It also hosted a huge domed planetarium in it’s core, an hotel, a roof garden and multiple terrasses to enjoy the impressive views on its surroundings.

Wright seemed to have been captivated by the spiral shape as he used it multiple times in future projects including in the famous Guggenheim Museum in New York where he turned the spiral upside down and dedicated it to pedestrians.

This print was created for "Timeless 2", an exhibition about the architect's most celebrated buildings at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

Our prints are sold unframed and rolled with Kraft paper in a sturdy postal tube.
