DS Velvet Quilted Textile Block Pillow
When Wright came to Southern California in the early 1920s, he began working in a design language very different from his previous projects. Like so many before and since, Wright was eager for a new start in the golden state. In January 1923, Wright opened up a small office in West Hollywood and began taking on commissions, including four houses to be constructed solely of geometric cast concrete blocks. This work gave new life to the humble concrete block with decorative bas-reliefs and a new building system he called “textile block construction,” a reference to his idea of weaving concrete blocks on the warp and weft of reinforced steel, forming an interlocking system for the “fabric” of the house. By using hand-cast blocks using raw materials found on the property, he blended the house with the color and form of the trees and hillside.
