25 Feb Why Fallingwater’s Psychedelic Makeover Is Good for Architecture
Whether you think that the graphic stunts of Lisa Frank are a stylistic masterstroke or an artistic abomination, there is no disputing that the company’s latest piece of digital mischief will grab the attention of everyone who lays eyes on it. “Lisa Frank Lloyd Wright” sees the famous cantilevers of Wright’s renowned Fallingwater residence painted with a vibrant coat of zebra stripes and leopard print, with rainbow unicorns, adding to this surreal piece of virtual vandalism.
Lisa Frank, an Arizona-based corporation that makes stationery products and stickers for children, is known for its eye-watering use of rainbow colors and psychedelic wildlife, designed to fire creativity and exercise the imagination of young people. The company has a penchant for creating imagery that assaults the eyes, and their latest architectural effort is no different — Fallingwater’s garish reinvention suffers from a serious overdose of happy vibes.
