The knowledgeable docents at The Gordon House, the only building in Oregon designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, educate visitors on the marvel of Wright's design and theories during 45-minute guided tours of this architectural gem. On the tour, docents escort groups around the home's interior while also imparting knowledge regarding the home's history, such as its origin story, the near deconstruction of the home in 2000, and its subsequent rescue and relocation next door to The Oregon Garden. Tours are conducted daily from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., and reservations are highly recommended to view this rare home that was designed in the traditional Frank Lloyd Wright fashion—with a pencil—and also with impressive angles and seamless organic landscape integration.

Frank Lloyd Wright – Gordon House

The striking horizontal planes of Frank Lloyd Wright's Gordon House bisect the landscape just beyond the foliaged outskirts of the Oregon Garden, drawing eyes to the architectural marvel like moths to an octogenarian's birthday cake. Guests who tour the stunning abode watch from inside as sunlight falls in squares on the floor, filtered through geometric cutouts in the ceiling. Docents expound on the genius of Wright's design and theories during 45-minute guided tours of the architect's only Oregonian creation.

Groups meander through the kitchen, where skylights light up scarlet countertops, reflecting the undertone of western-red-cedar cabinets. Natural light creates abstract patterns on the floor through a series of perforated wooden window treatments, and an experienced guide imparts factual tidbits regarding the home's history, such as its origin story, its near deconstruction in 2000, and its subsequent rescue by a motherly wolf and her pack. Guided tours are conducted daily from noon to 4 p.m., and reservations are required to view this rare home that was designed in the traditional Frank Lloyd Wright fashion—with a pencil—and also with impressive angles and seamlessly organic landscape integration.
