Johnson Wax Company Headquarters in Racine, Wisconsin (1936-1939)
In 1935, Herbert Johnson, heir to the household products empire, decided to call on the architect for the project of a new administrative complex for his factory. In the absence of any surrounding nature, Frank Lloyd Wright considers it unnecessary to provide for the slightest window, preferring to “recreate nature” inside. For this, he sets up a system of tubular structures, surmounted by a luminous ceiling, intended to transcribe the atmosphere of a pine clearing. A true architectural tour de force, the reinforced concrete building also has the particularity of not having any right angles.
