Famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright was born on June 8, 1867. In honor of his 145th birthday, we're taking a look at his indelible imprint on the design landscape of Los Angeles, home to a couple of his renown creations, some the public are lucky enough to get up close to take a look at.

His Hollyhock House, perched in Barnsdall Park, is possibly the most iconic of his L.A. work. He also did several homes with names that are likely familiar: The Alice Millard House (Pasadena), the John Storer House (West Hollywood), the Samuel Freeman House (Hollywood) and the Ennis House in Griffith Park. There's also the lesser-known (and worked over) Anderton Court Shops in Beverly Hills.
