The Frank House is a living Bauhaus museum and home of Alan Frank. Designed for Alan's parents, Cecelia and Robert, by Walter Gropius, who founded the Bauhaus in 1919, and one of his youngest and most talented students, Marcel Breuer, The Frank House had a vision for healthy, happy living and the integration of architecture and landscape. It features intact original fixtures, lighting and designs including the original of Breuer's curved, cantilevered stair—which he made a signature of his work–and Anni Albers textiles.
