Foundation Purpose and Activities

image5

Our foundation was formed to purchase the Frank Lloyd Wright Pappas House in Town & Country, renovate it, and open it to the public as a cultural resource for all to enjoy.  St. Louis maintains a wealth of historically and architecturally significant buildings. The Pappas House is part of that legacy that must be preserved.

The home is notable for its Usonian Automatic design, and the retention of the original Wright-designed furnishings and fabrics. The floor plan and structural design is based on two foot squares.  The concept was to have a house that could be "automatically" built by the owner.

The City of Town & Country has indicated support for preserving the Pappas House. Discussions are taking place about the possibility of having the house be part of a municipal park.  The possibility of the park being named after a major donor exists.
