The 20th century was home to some of mankind’s most prolific architects, few of which could hold a candle to an ambitious and celebrated artist who found his niche in futuristic design. Frank Lloyd Wright’s work has become rudimentary in the study of architecture, but out of his 1,171 projects, only 511 were ever built. Talented Spanish architect David Romero has given the world a glimpse into what some of Wright’s unfinished constructs may have become.
Using 3D-rendered images based off of original contextual assets found through historical, built, environmental, and analytical endeavors, Romero has envisioned these projects through the use of Autocad, Revit, 3DS Max, and Vray. The results produced for an upcoming issue of Frank Lloyd Wright Quarterly are breathtaking — showing a variety of cylindrical, modular, and innovative concepts that were all ahead of their time — reminiscent of a “not-so-dystopian” future. Romero explains that the images are an homage to some of the forgotten concepts the late architect left behind. To date, he has rendered the unfinished Pauson House, Larkin Administration Building, Trinity Chapel, and the Gordon Strong automobile objective — a towering four-story Planetarium that was never fully realized.
