Frank Lloyd Wright wall panel from the Arizona Biltmore Hotel
This panel is from the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and Albert Chase MacArthur. a former draftsman who worked in Wright's Oak Park Studio. The hotel was built in 1927 at 2400 East Missouri Avenue in Phoenix Arizona. The hotel's "Biltmore Block", features Wright's concrete block system in a pattern said to represent a freshly cut palm tree. In June of 1973, a fire destroyed much of the third and fourth floors, and created water damage throughout the first and second floors. This wall panel was created in 1973 before the re-opening for the resort's winter season. The panel is 62 1/2 inches in height and 21 1/4 inches wide, with a depth of one inch. The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed pattern was silkscreened on wallpaper, and mounted to particleboard. This panel is fit into a metal framework. The Arizona Biltmore is slated to re-open in April of 2021. It is said that the Aztec Room and cottages reveal Wright's designs with little or no adjustments. A stay at this legendary establishment is on my bucket list.
