Rosenbaum House Restoration
PRESERVATION FLORENCE: THE ROSENBAUM HOUSE RESTORATION
The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Rosenbaum House is a Florence icon. Built in 1939 for Stanley and Mildred Rosenbaum, this house is one of the best examples of Usonian architecture in the nation. Usonian architecture—a Frank Lloyd Wright concept—relies on an organic method of building. Built into and out of the ground, Usonian architecture drew from its natural surroundings and transformed the home space with natural light, an open floor plan, and a horizontal layout that stretched the imagination of what a house could be. This presentation—on Thursday, March 21st at 6 pm at the Rosenbaum House Ticketing Area– will explore the restoration of the Rosenbaum House that took place in the early 2000s by the principle architect of the project, Don Lambert. After the presentation, there will be a walk through of the house.
The Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area and the Florence Arts and Museums are partnering on a year-long series of presentations and workshops based around our city’s wealth of historic buildings, neighborhoods, and landscapes. This is the third in the series. This program is free and is sponsored by the City of Florence Department of Arts and Museums and the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area.
