Coonley Playhouse I Throw
Avery Coonley commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build the Playhouse for his wife, Queene Ferry, after Wright built the main residence for the couple. Ferry had already built one smaller progressive school and was very interested in the education of children. The Playhouse features one of Wright’s most playful art glass window designs with asymmetrical geometric designs and suggestions of flags, balloons, and confetti. The brightly colored windows bring to mind a parade that Wright referred to as a “kinder symphony.” Since the Playhouse was intended for children’s education and performances, this fun theme was entirely appropriate.
