Construction of a "Usonian" house on the campus of Florida Southern College in Florida was recently completed. The structure, which will be part of the Sharp Family Tourism and Education Center, is the 13th of 18 structures designed 74 years ago by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. A key feature of the building is its walls made of concrete blocks manufactured from molds designed by Wright himself. The 2,000 concrete blocks are mixed with 6,000 blocks of colored glass.
