One of the final masterpieces in the illustrious career of iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright, offered here is the original roofing schematic for "Tirrana" in New Canaan, CT. Tirranna" is an Australian aboriginal word meaning "running waters," an apt name for this spectacular residence. Located on a pond just off the Noroton River, it features elaborate land and water-scaping. Built of standard concrete block, glass, and Colorundum flooring, and trimmed with Philippine mahogany, most of the house conforms to a hemicycle plan. Its living/dining wing overlooks a pool which steps down to a pond and extensive landscaped gardens, designed by Frank Okamura, landscape architect for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Charles Middeleer, a notable local landscape architect, also contributed to the landscape design. The property was completed in 1955 and stands as one of the final marvels for Wright, who passed away in 1955.

Offered here is an ORIGINAL 44" x 30" floorplan highlighting the roofing design of the property, signed in the lower right "FLLW/ 55" in a distinctive red box, placed on sheet to highlight the master architect's final approval. Executed in graphite, red pencil, and black ink. In fine condition, with light overall handling wear, including some minor tears and pin holes to edges from usage in the project. An excellent blueprint of Wright's typical Usonian form for one of his most well-known designs! Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.
