Despite having passed away at the age of 91 at the tail-end of the 1950s, Frank Lloyd Wright remains an icon in the architectural world, with a legendary portfolio of work that continues to inspire future generations of designers and architects. While there’s no shortage of noteworthy buildings penned by the Wisconsin native, FLW also had a myriad of projects and plans that never came to fruition. Now, 61-years after his death, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation is poised to release a novel publication focusing on one of FLW’s unused designs, the ‘Oasis’ Capitol building in Arizona.

The main feature in the Foundation’s upcoming The Frank Lloyd Wright Quarterly hard-copy magazine, the sprawling domed structure was intended to be set in the state’s Sonoran Desert. Despite the futuristic, idiosyncratic design, FLW ended up losing the government bid to another architect, and not long after the plans for Oasis were filed away and then largely forgotten through the sands of time. At least until now. Using Frank Lloyd Wright’s original plans and blueprints, Spanish architect David Romero, has turned the American architecture legend’s designs into photorealistic 3D renders, bringing the project to life for the first time since its initial inception in 1957. To learn more about the project, you can check out the full press release linked below.
