Tree of Life
Darwin D. Martin residence. Buffalo, New York, 1903.
The leaded glass window design from the Darwin Martin house is one of the defining images of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is one element of a masterpiece of structure, furnishing, and light.
"Conceive now that an entire building might grow up out of conditions as a plant grows up out of the soil, as free to be itself, to 'live its own life according to Nature' as is the tree. Dignified as a tree in the midst of nature."
— An Autobiography, 1932
